Dublin #6 - Stand-up, Start-up... financing the low carbon economy
We moved up a few notches in the Dublin Chapter hosting Dublin #6 Climate Cocktail Club at the WeWork Labs Charlemont Exchange - in short a whole lotta fun (thanks Victoria)! Courtesy of another generousness partnership with BVP Investments (thanks Elliot) and some epic event planning from Ray, the Club showcased Dublin's finest in low carbon and impact-led start-ups. From innovative EV hire car disruptor UFODRIVE to home health care innovator Health Beacon, part cyborg visual enhancements from Utility AR to homegrown low carbon leaders Crowley Carbon, urban mobility transformers BleeberBike (who also showcased their ride on the night.
"Climate Cocktail Club provides a meaningful channel for meeting a wide audience of environmentally and socially aware individuals. At BVP, we recognise the responsibility we have in financing innovative startups, a sector that traditionally lacks many good sources of capital. Panellists UtilityAR, UFO Drive, BleeperBike, Crowley Carbon, HealthBeacon and numerous other companies use their innovations to address Ireland’s national development goals but often face obstacles when securing funding. That’s where BVP comes in." Elliot Griffin, Director, BVP
Joined by over 100 Clubbers with lots of new faces the night quickly got up to speed as the WeWork beers and CCC Cocktails were being sunk (apologies no mocktails this time around - I know it "looked" like orange juice)! The spirit of CCC was strong as the panel of start-ups took quick fire questions from Ray on the why, how and what of life in and beyond the incubation stage. Ireland is hopping with a plethora of sustainability led start ups and BVP's portfolio are (and have been) at the fore - just look at the UrbanVolt success story!
CCC confirmed again as the place to be, thanks to the Panel, BVP, WeWork and you our Clubbers! Rock on the Climate Cocktail Club Christmas Cracker - 12th December.
