Bubble 2.0 from Silicon Republic – with pearls of wisdom from the IVCA – The local venture capital (VC) community in Ireland is still cautious, though it has raised â‚¬750m to invest in the next wave of technology firms, having invested â‚¬1bn over the past decade. â€œMost of our investments would be in software firms that can grow to scale, not in dot.com companies or because someone has a nice widget,â€ says Regina Breheny, director general of the Irish Venture Capital Association. â€œFunding in Irish companies is at its highest now since 2001, but much of these are follow-on investments in existing companies. There is still a lot of work to be done in raising money to seed new start-ups. Venture capitalists are currently raising money but itâ€™s debatable how much of these funds will go into new plays in the next five years.â€
