A third ingredient in the success of a barcamp (after the logo and the tag. And maybe the T-Shirt) is the presence of a VC. In Cork Brian Caulfield fulfilled that role and in Waterford on Jan 20th it looks like Tom Shinkwin from Enterprise Equity has drawn the short straw 🙂
I want Tom to speak – and specifically I want to hear about their investment in O’hEocha Design. They do funky hi-fi speakers and appear to be moving into wireless hifi kit. I guess he could mention funding for start-up’s as well – Brian got a great audience in Cork.
