Today’s snapshot from the centre of the universe.
Beachhut PR founder Paul Hayes addresses the audience during yesterday’s Startup Wake at DCU’s Ryan Academy. Designated Mourner Donal Calahane writes:
One of the most useful startup events ever hosted in Ireland. People got to see the honesty that while failure is painful, its also a learning experience. The honesty expressed by the mourners of the departed startups really highlighted a need to balance product building with selling skills – in all three cases it came down to the wire with failure to close the signing of a specific deal or contract being the death knell for all three”.
