I participated in todays Enterprise Ireland Startup Class of 2007 out at Leopardstown Racecourse. EI do these events so well that you’d have to ask why they don’t find and excuse to do them more often. Everything was laid on, Artwork and company logo, booth, power supply, leaflet holder the lot. All we had to do was plugin out laptop, which was where sods law kicked in because I’d forgotten my power supply. Katherine Lucey our COO came to the rescue with a mercy mission to her house to pick up a replacement.
79 companies were represented, each with its own booth area. The cross section of companies spanned catering, bio-tech, enterprise software and even a consumer play. Made some great contacts with both partners and investors and hope to exploit those connections in the coming months.
