Maria Staunton, manager at the GMIT Innovation Hub commented: “INC60 is all about creating a new network that can deliver good quality relevant content for start-ups based in the west. Being based in the west does not mean that start-ups cannot gain access to the important information they require. This network is all about delivering that content and making sure the entrepreneurs are involved in the delivery.”

Light refreshments are kindly sponsored by Mayo County Enterprise Board.
