It’s no secret that investment and venture capital plays an important role in start-ups in Ireland, with many entrepreneurs requiring funding to realise their business dreams.

Getting to meet or network with a private equity firm can often prove difficult.

Money to invest

InterTradeIreland’s annual Venture Capital Conference brings together in one room for one day several of the funds and individuals with money to invest.

The event, which is taking place in Croke Park on Wednesday, is aimed at start-ups and growing companies seeking investment.

A must for entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, business angels, investors and anyone with an interest in venture capital, the conference will showcase the current sources of equity funding and how to secure investment in 2013.

Keynote speakers at the conference include Paul Adams, global head of brand design at Facebook, and Johnny Walker, entrepreneur and founder of Global Diagnostic.
