Euronext Dublin 2022 IPOready programme gets underway

Back

Dublin – 10 February 2022 – Euronext Dublin’s fourth edition of IPOready, a strategic financing programme for high-growth companies exploring fundraising options up to and including IPO, launched today with nine companies commencing the six-month long programme. The objective of the programme is to equip participating companies with an in-depth understanding of all sources of finance available to them and determine which is most suited to their needs. On completion, the participating founders and entrepreneurs will have the skillsets required to get their businesses investment ready, refine their pitch for investors and form a valuable network of peers, advisors and investors. 

This year’s IPOready intake includes companies in the cleantech, fintech and life sciences sectors, including Continuum Commerce, Elgin Energy, FIRE1, JOE Media, Life Scientific and Shorla Pharma.

Run in partnership with Enterprise Ireland and the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF), IPOready builds on the success of last year’s programme, which saw alumnus HealthBeacon list on the Euronext Growth market in Dublin.

Niall Jones, Head of Listing for Ireland and UK at Euronext, welcomed participants at the induction day, saying: “It is great to see so many ambitious companies in our IPOready 2022 cohort.  Previous graduates of this programme have benefitted enormously from their participation, acquiring the necessary skills from their mentors and specialist advisors to determine which funding option is the right one for their business and how to engage with the investment community. This year, the nine high-growth Irish and UK companies participating in IPOready will benefit from joining other scaling pan-European technology companies during Euronext’s TechShare campus module in Lisbon in June.”

Over the course of the programme, IPOready participants will benefit from Euronext’s other pre-IPO initiatives, joining the TechShare1 programme and networking with European entrepreneurs. They will also have the option of joining ELITE, Euronext’s SME network and private market.

Notes to Editors:1 TechShare is Euronext’s pan-European educational programme designed to support Tech companies aiming to go public in the next one to three years. This year, 121 Tech companies will take part in the programme in ten European countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland. Since the launch of Euronext’s TechShare programme in 2015, more than 650 alumni have participated. Of the 17 listed alumni in total, 10 listed on Euronext markets in 2021.
