Welcome again to Startup Digest Galway - the startup news and events calendar for Galway.

Bizmentors are delighted to host a two hour CSF Masterclass on Thursday 1st March delivered by Donncha Hughes (sorry - thats me!). Barry Flannery of XeroTech, a current New Frontiers participant in GMIT will attend to speak for a short while on his (successful) experiences with the CSF application process.  

Local Enterprise Week takes place from the 4th to the 10th March 2018 in Galway and other counties. If you are considering starting a business, have a fledgling business or would like to diversify or export, Enterprise Week events are a must. A host of experts will be on hand to offer you quality and qualified advice - getting started, business planning, marketing your business, lead generation, where to access funding, digital strategies and much more..! Further information on the LEO Galway website.

Scaling Irish start-ups are being invited to apply for Google’s Adopt a Startup programme, which recently opened for applications. Places are limited to just 30 and applications close on 2 March. Mayo based Co-Founder of oodlique, Sophia McHugh speaks very highly of the programme.

Congratulations to GTC based Siren on the recent announcement that they have raised €3 million in seed funding to help bring its data investigation technology to new markets.

Best wishes
Donncha
