InterTradeIreland wishes to appoint a service provider to undertake the role of Lead Equity Advisor for the EquityNetwork. The appointed service provider will work directly with InterTradeIreland to carry forward the work of EquityNetwork.
The InterTradeIreland EquityNetwork initiative was established in 2001 to assist the development of an equity culture on the island. EquityNetwork’s initial brief focussed on 3 key areas:
1. Educating the demand side;
2. Promotion of “best practice”; and
3. Co-ordinating the supply side – focusing on seed and early stage.
To address these shortfalls InterTradeIreland developed EquityNetwork and the original aim of the programme was defined as to ‘Promote Equity to Accelerate Business Growth’ with the aim of accelerating business growth among new ventures, small and expanding businesses and inward investors. The initiative’s mission statement was subsequently updated to reflect the main areas of focus ‘to transform equity raising businesses into first class investor ready companies’.
