It’s been a busy November here at KillBiller HQ, firstly we launched in Canada yesterday, an achievement that we’re really proud of. Also, on the same day, we won the InterTrade Ireland Seedcorn regional final, emerging as the best New-Start company in Dublin.
We were up against stiff competition with SwiftComply and Healthbridge Technology competing for the same prize. We spent a long time honing our pitch and preparing a rock-solid business plan, and would like to thank everyone who's helped us along the way for all their help and patience during the process.
The prize money from the event will help finance the development and growth of our business and comes at a great time during our initial phase of international expansion.
"The coming weeks and months for KillBiller represent a period of extremely quick growth as we expand into markets that are much larger than Ireland. The prize money from the InterTrade Ireland Seedcorn competition will be invaluable in providing support for this expansion and funding marketing and sales activities in the new regions. This prize couldn’t come at a better time for KillBiller.”
- Shane Lynn, KillBiller CEO
Winning this round also means we will go on to compete in the all-island final of the competition, which will take place on Wednesday 25th November at Clontarf Castle, Dublin. KillBiller will go head-to-head with the winners of the Northern Ireland, Connaught, Leinster & Munster finals for a category prize of €50,000 and overall prize of €100,000.
"Now in its 13th year, Seedcorn is the island’s biggest business competition for new start and early stage companies in any sector, from any part of the island. The competition, aimed at companies who have a new equity funding requirement, has an overall cash prize fund of €280,000, with no equity stake."
