There are no demos or talks lined up this week. If you have a new site or app that you’d like to show off and get some feedback on, get in touch.
Bizcamp Dublin takes place on May 29th in the Guinness Storehouse. BizCamp is an opportunity for entrepreneurs and innovators to come together, share experiences, and possibly create something new. Definitely worth a trip.
Cork Open Coffee is also looking for any businesses that might like to Sponsor some future Open Coffee events, this means for a small amount we’d be able to get in some Coffee and nibbles from local businesses, especially Mr. Cotton Coffee.
Talk to you all on Friday,

Since Cork OpenCoffee began in early 2007, we’ve had some intermittent sponsorship of the coffee and scones which has always been appreciated. So we’re delighted that Paul Brugger from Citylocal Cork has agreed to sponsor three of the Rubicon sessions (with the first one just two days ago).
This means no more icky instant coffee and the arrival of the great Mr Cotton coffee instead. By the way, well done to Declan for his appearance on TV3 this week.
Citylocal is great resource for local businesses, so the fit with OpenCoffee is perfect. In addition to the paid business listings, you can advertise your properties, post local events and sell items, all for free.
This week’s Cork OpenCoffee is in the Rubicon building in CIT from 10am-12pm.
The demo/talk slot is about a new business idea from John Peavoy, Bartosz Ptaszynski and Phoebe Bright. It is about helping companies jumpstart their software ideas. They would like to share their plans so far and hear your views on whether the business will work, and if so, what markets they could target and who they should involve.
We will ask Mr Cotton to provide the coffee and this will require a small donation from everyone to cover the cost.
Thanks again to the Rubicon for kindly hosting us.
