Echodio to present at SXSW

admin 14th of February 2009 by admin

A quick bit of background…

Niall Smart
A few months ago, Niall Smart contacted us in relation to his new startup – and we did a post where he was looking for a co-founder for his stealth startup – Cloudsync

Niall hooked up with Vinny Glennon and Cormac Driver – and these guys were accepted to the world famous Y Combinator in San Francisco.


Cloudsync is now known as Echodio – and Niall pinged us over the weekend to let us know that they’ve been shortlisted by the SXSW music+film+interactive festival to present at SXSW Accelerator, their showcase for technology startups.

One of four finalists in the music category – picked from over 200 applications.

Best of luck to the lads – keep the Irish flag flying….
