This October we'll celebrate our first birthday, with another two-day Summit, jammed with over 100 speakers from all over the world eager to meet and talk with the next wave of start ups.
Last October the Summit sprang into life with speakers including Jack Dorsey, Chad Hurley and Niklas Zennstrom. The Summit was started by Paddy Cosgrave to provide Irish start ups and web types with the opporunity to meet and learn from incredible entrepreneurs, investors and influencers at about half the cost of comparable events in Europe. In 2011, we're staying true to that aim but welcoming with open arms our new friends from across Europe who have heard "good things" about a Summit in Dublin.
And yes there will be music, a start up zone, 'refreshments', revellery, networking and more.
David Kelly and Daire Hickey now co-organise the event with Paddy.
We also give great, young start ups the opportunity to get on stage and launch their products.
The Summits have been covered by leading international media including Bloomberg, The New York Times, TechCrunch, Wired, CNBC, The Telegraph, The Irish Times and many more.
We also run a free Summit in the run up to every Summit known as the Pub Summit. Yes, it's a summit in pub. Over the course of six Pub Summits, thousands of people have joined us for a pint. Add your name to our mailing list to be sure you find out when our next Pub Summit is taking place.
