Following the financial crash of 2008 – which led to many vacant high-end buildings and projects left unfinished – the resurrection of Dublin’s Silicon Docks has become a beacon of hope.
And thanks to the decision of big tech firms to set up shop there, including Google and Facebook, it soon created a thriving tech scene. Alongside the region being home to the mighty WebSummit for many years, Dublin has a vast pool of talent (in fact, Ireland boasts the youngest population in Europe) and a huge amount of exciting startups.
Which is why I’m especially excited to attend Europe’s fastest growing tech conference, and according to The Memo ‘the next WebSummit’, this week: Dublin Tech Summit. At the event, I’ll be meeting fast-growing companies to see if we can help them in their journey to IPO, get new customers, secure investment or change industries. Alongside hearing from an impressive list of speakers from The White House, Twitter, Slack, Airbnb and Code First: Girls.
What I particularly like about Dublin Tech Summit is their commitment to supporting women in tech by launching an initiative and having a representative attendee and speaker list.
I’ll be writing about the event over the next couple of days so watch this space. And if you’re interested in meeting during the event to discuss your communication challenges or how your startup can get in the media spotlight regularly, get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
