Dublin Beta: Startup Gathering Edition

Tonight was Dublin Beta 15 – that, in a transient world is consistency.

I haven’t been for a while and this seemed an appropriate evening to rekindle things in The Hangar on Dublin’s Andrew’s Lane;

Fingal Enterprise Week started today and by lunch time I’d met hundreds of people planning on starting small businesses and tonights Dublin Beta was a The Startup Gathering edition.

John O’Rourke Russell Banks and Gene Murphy make Dublin Beta happen once a quarter and although this is a mature event there’s still a lovely Indie feel to it – there’s a rawness and a swagger to the event that’s helped it retain its audience and it has similarities not so much to London events, but to start-up events you might see somewhere like Berlin.

So, I headed off to Andrews Lane, and found that FIntech had found its way in to Dublin Beta – food and drink, hospitality were there but the first pitch that caught my eye was Daire O’Neill’s A5 Technologies……
