Continuing with the interesting people I met at Le Web ’10 are Paddy Cosgrave, Daire Hickey and David Kelly, organizers of the Dublin based conference F.ounders. The event brings together about one hundred tech-company founders from the US, Europe and Asia, providing an opportunity for them to “meet and discuss issues” but also to connect with each other in a way that usually does not happen (that is in an intimate and curated space).
The first edition of this by-invitation-only conference took place in October 2010, paired to the Dublin Web Summit in which the Irish trio mentioned above are also involved (and to which most of the F.ounders speakers/attendees had participated too).
In the video Paddy Cosgrave introduces the goal behind F.ounders and insight in how to stimulate better relationships in conferences (hint: it has to do with the size of it).
Who said there are no spaces and ideas for new conferences?
