cover art for Beyond the Breakthrough featuring Helen McBreen

We are joined by Helen McBreen, a partner at Atlantic Bridge who oversees the spinout-focused University Bridge Fund – backed by Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and University College Cork.

She talks about the importance of diversity on both sides of the table and gives us an insight into how the fund works with researchers long before a spinout is formed.

She also tells about the strengths of the Irish ecosystem and why, even though she has just closed Fund II, it is not too early to start thinking about Fund III.
