NDRC is an early stage investor in innovation, making ventures happen by investing in startups and improving the environment in which ventures can grow.


We work with the best and brightest researchers, technologists and entrepreneurs to turn great ideas into successful ventures.

Over the last five years we have been working to build the best model for supporting early stage technologies, and we're starting to see the results. By the end of 2013 our portfolio of startup ventures had secured €40m in commercial follow-on investment. Each year we work with c.1,000 individuals and we invest into between 30 and 40 early stage technology ventures, and in June 2014 we were ranked as one of the top 3% of business incubators in the world.

Our core team is made up of people who have backgrounds in building and scaling businesses, developing technologies, and investing in new ventures; people who roll up their sleeves to move our partner ventures forward.

We run two residential investment programmes. Along with capital investment we devote time and attention to each of the teams going through these programmes and provide them with a base of operations at NDRC where they can flourish in an environment of peers:

· NDRC VentureLab is Europe's first startup accelerator dedicated to commercializing intellectual property from scientific fields. If you are a research with IP or technologies to commercialise, or an experienced business person looking for your next opportunity, please get in touch.

· NDRC LaunchPad is Ireland's leading digital accelerator, designed to enable entrepreneurial teams to transform credible ideas into commercially viable businesses. If you are working on a digital startup idea, please get in touch.

As well as these two investment programmes, we run a number of other initiatives throughout the year, all designed to enable people to build successful high growth technology businesses.
