Ian Lucey, founder of the Lucey Fund, will be in Halifax on May 31. This early stage investment fund is based in Ireland and will only be in Halifax for one day, so there will be 2 events,;one at Volta during lunch and one in the evening hosted by Startup Grind. Both events are meant to capitalize on Ian’s time, and will cover different topics to get the most value for the community.

More about the Lucey Fund

Lucey fund

They mostly invest in entrepreneurs who understand their industry, but who have not built technology companies before. Lucey funds the acceleration of these startups by funding the development of their first scalable, secure, fully-viable product, affording the founder time to do what they’re best at, business. Lucey takes the headache out of R&D.

The Lucey Fund has offices in Dublin and Santa Monica. Ian and his team are interested in the Nova Scotian ecosystem, and are actively looking for new companies to invest in, so this is a great opportunity to connect with an international early stage investment fund and discover key insights of how they help founders. Their portfolio is 63% female founded companies, which is one example of how they are different.
