CorkBIC has been a fantastic network for all of us here at Soundwave. We’ve learnt so much from attending and speaking at the events and meeting with other entrepreneurs. The support structure around CorkBIC has been great and has opened so many doors for us - we’ve even had the chance to meet with Apple founder Steve Wozniak as a result!

The team at CorkBic were a great help to us at Trustev during the early days when people and resources were extremely tight. They helped us cut through the bureaucracy and focus on the information and decisions that were relevant and a priority at the time.
Pat Phelan, CEO Trustev
The CorkBIC team and network have played a big role in helping us get Tweekaboo from an idea to a HPSU. I'd recommend any founder to meet with them as early as possible to accelerate the journey through feasibility and beyond.
Eugene Murphy, Tweekaboo
CorkBIC were excellent in preparing our business plan and in providing assistance to engage with and present to investors. In addition, the Entrepreneur Experience event attended in April 2014 was nothing short of outstanding and I can only give it my strongest recommendation for any entrepreneur lucky enough to be invited.

Without CorkBIC Compliance & Risks wouldn't exist. It's that simple. It's important to have at your side people who have 'been there done that' and who can recognise patterns so as to direct and challenge you, especially at the beginning. You're walking a tightrope and you need encouragement, structure and support which I was fortunate enough to benefit from, and which I am still very grateful for.
