My activities during Barcamp have just been extended; besides my talk about “The need for an alternative telecoms infrastructure in Ireland” I will now also sit on a panel discussing “Finding money for your start-up”.
Just so that people can have a bit of an idea of what the content of both is I will give a short outline below:
“The need for an alternative telecoms infrastructure in Ireland”
Rather than giving a big long talk spouting just my opinion on the deplorable state of broadband availability I hope to start a bit of an interactive discussion. I will give a short description of what I consider lies at the root of this problem and why I think that an alternative telecoms infra-structure is the only solution to this problem. After that I would very much have a open discussion on the subject. What I do not want is a session of Eircom, Comreg & governemnt bashing. There has been enough of this for the last few years and it does not lead to a solution to the problem.
“Finding money for your start-up”
This is a panel discussion so, apart from giving a quick outline on what’s involved in starting to raise funds by going through a SEC listing with the aim of trading on the OTC/BB, I will attempt to answer participants questions to the best of my ability.
