We are so excited to have won a place on the AIB Start-Up Academy, sponsored by the Irish Times. 500 businesses applied, whittled down to 70, and then after a nail-biting pitch to 6 judges and a camera crew, we were selected as one of the National finalists. I’ll be joining 13 other fabulous businesses next week for an 8-week accelerator business programme that culminates in a final battle where we pitch again to win a prize worth €200,000!
This is such a great opportunity for me personally and for kiki moon as a business. What started out as a small children’s textile label is growing rapidly into a global design brand, now shipping to 30 countries worldwide! Stay tuned for more updates on my journey in this academy, I’ll be posting regularly on our blog about what we’re at.
