“It is always difficult to take the first step towards the unknown. But that first step becomes so much easier when you have a clear map of the journey ahead, and can share that with key strategic partners. Preparation for that journey is vital to its completion. It creates clarity of vision, a sense of common purpose, and confidence. The first step is no longer towards the unknown, but towards the adventure of scaling your business in international markets. That is the goal of Pulsar Dublin Bootcamp this coming September. Our Bootcamp is being launched by Pulsar VC and Guinness Enterprise Center with the support of Enterprise of Ireland and some of the best minds involved in the Irish ecosystem. Don’t miss this opportunity to make sure your first step is heading in the right direction. “ – Pavel Korolev, Pulsar Venture Capital CEO
