Demobar and FOWA RoadTrip in Dublin

12th of September 2007 by conor

Tomorrow sees a jam-packed day of events for the Irish web start-up scene. We mentioned the basics in a previous post but it’s come a long way since then.

Starting at 2pm, Enterprise Ireland has arranged pitching training for ten start-ups. By the end of it, those who are presenting later should be slick operators. There may be a surprise guest to help them hone even further.

This is immediately followed at 5pm by a social meetup of those people going on the Paddy’s Valley tour of Silicon Valley in December. This trip is getting more impressive daily with the announcement this week that a journalist from The Irish Times newspaper will accompany the tour.

Then we get to the meat of the day at 6.30pm with DemoBar and FOWA Roadtrip. blognation is delighted to be a media partner for this event. The idea behind DemoBar is that ten web startups are given booths to present their wares to the assembled masses. They are expecting a big turnout for this. There are at least three UK VCs coming over, a bunch of Irish investor types, National press, state bodies, other start-ups and representatives from some major corporations.

Ryan Carson and the crew from FOWA will also be in attendance and it sounds like all of their Road Trip stop-offs to date have been great fun. The upcoming Future of WebApps conference is looking like it will be the best yet. Ryan is a top bloke who is a mine a useful information about launching your own web business.

The hot startups who will be demoing tomorrow night are:

Roll on Thursday in Ely HQ on Hanover Quay in Dublin!
