Ireland’s inaugural InventFest event celebrates a new Irish wave of successful ‘Internet of Everything’ makers
RTÉ is delighted to sponsor InventFest, an inspiring, non-for-profit, inaugural evening event, celebrating Irish home-grown “Internet of Everything” inventors, designers and makers success stories. The new wave of Irish creativity will showcase their products and deliver inspirational talks. Jack Phelan, co-founder of the globally successful drop (smart kitchen scales), backed by PCH, Rob O’Reilly, inventor of the expressive guitar midi system backed by Sean O’Sullivan Ventures and David Craig creator of the Scriba Stylus, which had a successful kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in 2015 are some of the exciting makers already selling their products globally.
Inventfest.org founder, Michael Cusack Clyne, said “Our vision for the event is to inspire people to become successful inventors and makers. Our aim for the future of InventFest.org is to put Ireland and Dublin City on the global map as Europe’s premier “Internet of Everything” conference and tradeshow to both showcase and promote Irish home-grown hardware start-ups to International global game changers. The interest and appetite for this event has been phenomenal and highlights the true potential for a much larger event later this year.”
The event is taking place on Thursday, 4th February from 17:30 to 21:00 in Dogpatch Labs and all proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the ISPCC Childline. The event is in association with 100minds.org, a social enterprise that brings together some of Ireland’s top college students and connects them with one cause to achieve big goals in a short space of time.
