GECKO Governance has won the Best New Start award at the final of the Connacht/Leinster region of the 2016 InterTradeIreland all-island Seedcorn Investor Readiness Competition.

GECKO Governance, along with fellow Dundalk-based early stage company OVVO have made it through to the final at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast on Wednesday 23rd November next, where we will compete for a share of a cash prize of €150,000.

Speaking at the announcement of the award, GECKO Governance CEO and co-founder Shane Brett said “Building out our business plan was a lot of work but very rewarding in terms of ending with an investor ready business plan in great shape. The feedback we received will help provide a structured and well articulated business plan with clear credible goals and realistic assumptions of our  future business strategy, which will accelerate our plans of expansion to our London office later this year.”
