The Irish Times has a piece on Patrick and John Collison and their startup – Auctomatic which is part of the Ycombinator programme.
Quote from article:
“They rented an office in Limerick for three months but had no luck in securing funding in Ireland despite applying to Enterprise Ireland and other sources of seed funding”
They headed to the US – and based on the team and the advisors they have put together they are on an upward curve.
The timing of seedcamp could not be better…. see previous post and fixing the Irish startup ecosystem
