As part of the bizcamp we are going to have a panel of businesses who have successfully closed funding rounds in the last 6 to 9 months. While each story will be different there will be loads of learning to be done.
The overall message is that fundraising is still possible . Additional non-tech sector panelists are being hunted down and will be added soon.
Confirmed for the panel so far:
- Caelen King – whatclinic.com – €1.25 million Jan 2009 – detail here
- Niall Harbison – lookandtaste.com (formerly iFoods.tv) – €400k Oct 2008 - some detail here
- Campbell Scott – IGOPeople – €750k 2008 – some detail here
- Keith Bohanna – dbTwang – 110k Dec 2008 – some detail here
Thanks to Caelen, Niall and Campbell for agreeing to take part. Campbell is also one of the organisers of bizcamp D
