Jan Blanchard is busy with the video camera (Damien’s camera, he did say he was packing one?) and now, for those of you interested in what’s happening on the Paddy Valley trip to Silicon Valley.
Last night was due to see Tourist Republic, Putplace, Nubiq, Spoiltchild and Pix.ie all pitching in front of some VC panelists after a panel discussion on raising cash for Irish Web 2.0 companies hitting Silicon Valley. The videos though, available here, are giving a little insight as to what is happening the far side of the world for the week the Irish invade.
If you’re a Jaiku user, I would suggest tracking Damien Mulley for the week to catch his updates direct on the tour.
Ken, there’s also a PaddysValley channel on Jaiku (http://jaiku.com/channel/paddysvalley).
I always thought it would be extremely difficult to get funding from the west coast simply because of the difficulty a board member would have flying to ireland once a month or so. What are your thoughts?
