Sung to the tune of that horrible Venga Boys “We’re going to Ibiza” or as the locals on the no. 2 route in Cork call it “IzeBeetZaaahhh” The Zaaahh bit is said like you are using it to threaten someone with a head-butt. Anyways. Conor mentioned trips to Silicon Valley
Perhaps we are getting too used to having the Valley come to us in Europe and it is time to return the compliment and meet all those people we admire on their turf? Iâ€™m open to helping to arrange something like this later this year. Who would like to discuss this further?
James has now pointed out that return flights with Aer Lingus are as low as €450 return. So why not go later this year, in November? I’m up for it. Many of the tech people in Ireland now have a great contact list of people over there so why not go a step further and have a St. Patrick’s Tech Day while there? Rent a big room and have all the Irish that are coming over present their services to the room. Nothing too long-winded. Quick demos from everyone, then off the stage and network with all the folks. Why just tour and talk, you might as well gather people in a room and pitch. Maybe there’s a few rich Irish angels out there who would feel patriotic enough to invest in an Irish company?
Oh and like getting drunk on St. Patrick’s day, you don’t have to be Irish to partake. 🙂
After that, why not go to France?
