Alpha Hub Start-up Events – Expanding our Global Community
To grow our network and support the global start-up community, we’re excited to announce that Alpha Hub will be running a series of tech start-up events across some of Flutter’s technology centres including London, Dublin, Melbourne, Porto, Cluj and Edinburgh.
Our vision is to grow Alpha Hub into a global network that is greater than the sum of its parts and stronger than any one individual location. By leveraging the global scale of Flutter, we can facilitate conversations with the most appropriate people worldwide; like introducing a start-up from Romania to one of our brands in the US or connecting an investor in Dublin to a start-up in Melbourne.
We will kick off the series at our Betfair Romania Development offices in Cluj-Napoca, Romania on October 11th, where we’ll have a panel of speakers talking about the latest developments in AI. (More information here).
These start-up events are a great opportunity to find out more about our plans for Alpha Hub, and how we support the start-up ecosystem, including:
- Front Door to Flutter Entertainment – Are you a start-up with technology that you think might be of interest to Flutter or one of our global brands, but you don’t know how to find the best person to speak to? The Alpha Hub team will be able to put you in touch with the right people, either by joining one of our formal scouting programs, participating in one of our pitching events, or just an introduction to the relevant team.
- Mentoring, support or feedback – Either through one of our formal programs, or on a more ad hoc basis, we can provide feedback and guidance to start-ups. We also work with a network of external start-up mentors who can help take your business to the next level.
- Join our start-up database – If you’re interested in staying up to date with the latest developments in emerging technology and want to see which topics are of most interest to Flutter, join our start-up database. We’ll also reach out to you if we think you’ll be a good fit for any of our future programs.
- Connect to our wider network – At these events you be able to introduce your business to us and network with like-minded entrepreneurs and technologists. Where appropriate, we’ll gladly make introductions to our wider network of investors, advisors, corporates or other start-ups.
We’ll also be sharing our research into specific areas of emerging technology, like AI, blockchain and future mobile trends and discussing the latest developments in these areas with founders, investors and academics.
If you’re interested in joining, drop us an email and we’ll keep you updated on events in your local area.
If you’d like to be more actively involved in helping organize these events, i.e. presenting, hosting or promoting we’d love to hear from you.
