  Bringing Silicon Valley to Ireland

Organization:  xCellerate
Location:  Dublin and Belfast

xCellerate 2008 brought together a diverse and entrepreneurial group of technology and venture funding professionals from Ireland and Silicon Valley, including early stage companies, aspiring entrepreneurs, panelists and sponsors. 

Each half-day event featured panel discussions chaired by industry advisors and experienced entrepreneurs.  Topics of focus included:

  • Being an entrepreneur: How do I make this happen?
  • Bang for buck – Marketing 101
  • How do I make this a success?

Laurence Naughton, co-chair of Choate's Business & Technology Group, spoke on the panel entitled "How Do I Fund My Business Idea," which discussed funding in the USA versus funding in Ireland, valuation techniques and funding types.
