Class Medical win Munster Final in Seedcorn

Getting to the final of the Intertrade Ireland Munster final of the Seedcorn competition for Early Stage Companies was such any amazing achievement.

The competition involves creating a business plan, recording an introduction video of your company and opportunity and then pitching to a panel of judges that mimics a real investor pitch. The journey so far has been extremely useful and has allowed us to critically think about each step of our business plan.

Since winning this competition in the Munster Region we have been contacted by numerous investors interested in having the team pitch to them. This goes to show that Competitions such as Seedcorn are fantastic for start ups and allow companies to show case themselves with professional mentorship.
