Talent Garden Dublin welcomes Bill Liao as he joins Ireland’s first online ‘VC in Residence’ interview on July 2nd.According to the Irish Times, in 2020 VC funding for tech companies in Ireland has slowed down since the onset of the crisis although it hasn’t dried up completely. VC firms are helping to alleviate liquidity issues for companies and are still making new investments at a slower pace. At Talent Garden, we want to give our members and the startup community the chance to easily access expert advice and support from experienced VCs, which is why we created Ireland’s first ever Venture Capitalist in Residence Programme. This programme is brought to life through workshops, fireside chats, advisory sessions and panel debates where attendees can gain valuable insights from top VCs from around the world. Last year, we kicked off proceedings with a Fireside Chat with Entrepreneur, Venture Capitalist and Angel Investor, Brian Caulfield, who shared his global insights and expertise on what makes a good VC investment and the unique relationship of a VC and their investor companies. Ahead of our next Fireside Chat on July 2nd 2020 with Bill Liao, co-founder of the CoderDojo movement and of Weforest, we’re sharing Brian’s top tips for entrepreneurs looking for VC funding, to give attendees a taste of what they can expect from the programme and upcoming events.
