DUBLIN, IRELAND, 7 March 2019: This year’s InterTradeIreland Venture Capital Conference was held at Croke Park, Dublin.
This year’s Conference was especially important as a key element of it was to celebrate 20 years of InterTradeIreland’s promotion of Venture Capital throughout the island of Ireland.
The Conference was chaired by broadcaster and journalist Mark Simpson, and the delegates heard from a diverse line up of experienced VC experts including Crescent Capital’s Deirdre Terrins. Deirdre highlighted cyber security, digital creatives and big data as emerging venture capital areas. She said:
“As cyber threats continue to grow, there is a need for big data and data privacy to be intrinsically linked to a company’s security policy. This is a growing area of expertise in Ireland and we see it representing a huge opportunity for budding entrepreneurs, with interest from investors.”
