ISA TechBrew goes nationwide at the Startup Gathering 2015

This autumn, the Irish Software Association and the ISA Software Skillnet are delighted to take our successful TechBrew series around the country in support of The Startup Gathering.

“Start-ups: Three Customers is not a Business”

Pivot, Persevere or Pack-it-up

For leaders, investors and advisors in tech companies: Founders, Advisors, Mentors, Programme Leaders, Investors or anyone supporting the growth of the Technology Sector

  • What does it take to get from early validation to a growing business?
  • With insufficient data and only your gut how do you decide whether to Pivot, Persevere or Pack-it-up
  • Have you thrown too much into a ‘dream’ that in hindsight was madness
  • Did you ever find yourself stuck in ‘if only’ options with too much dependency on ‘hope’ and not on real feedback
  • How do you know if your business will work or it won’t?
  • How do you get to a real growing business from early validation?


  • James Kehoe, former CEO, Policy Impact Assessment (PIA)
  • William Fitzgerald, CEO, Inhance Technology (Wednesday     
  • Gareth Cuddy, CEO, Vearsa (formerly MD, Direct eBooks)
