Irish start-up SwiftComply is to represent Ireland in the Startup World Cup after beating nine other Irish start-ups to emerge victorious in the qualifier.
The Startup World Cup is a global initiative developed by Fenox Venture Capital that offers start-ups the opportunity to win $1m funding at the world competition stage which takes place in May 2018 in San Francisco, California.
SwiftComply is a platform that connects restaurants, cities and contractors to make environmental compliance easy. The company received High Potential Start-Up status from Enterprise Ireland in early 2017, and opened an office in the US this summer to be closer to US customers and took part in the Techstars programme in 2016, and earlier this year secured a $900,000 investment led by the former COO of Facebook, Owen Van Natta.
The team is led by CEO Michael O’Dwyer who is a UCD Engineering graduate and includes Tech Director David Gibbons who is also a researcher in the School of Biosystems and Food Engineering.
