Start-Up Live gets off to a flying start

The next generation of North West businesses came together earlier last week to share their hopes, fears and aspirations at the first of a series of Start-Up Live events.

The Start-Up Live tour, in partnership with, will take in 14 venues across Ireland and is part of Ulster Bank’s commitment to supporting new and emerging companies.

The first event took place in City of derry, with local business people who have ‘been there and done it’ to share and discuss their experiences and mistakes with the audience of would-be and recently-established firms.

Rhonda McClelland, Ulster Bank Commercial Manager, Limavady says that the events will be in tune with the needs of local entrepreneurs.

We’ve introduced a range of new initiatives to support start-up businesses, including waiving transaction fees for two years and subscription to a number of our specialist banking services.
