A specially chartered train left Cork’s Kent Station yesterday afternoon to bring investors, entrepreneurs and start-ups to the Dublin Web Summit. Think Visual made the journey too in order to create this snapshot for our Silicon Republic readers.
Cork tech companies VoxPro, PCH International and Trustev covered the cost of the chartered train for local Cork start-ups as well as visitors from overseas. Passengers had the opportunity to take part in a variety of networking activities on three specially designed carriages.
Local start-ups were given space on the Start-up carriage to receive 20-minute speed mentoring sessions from top accelerator TechStars. A Speakers carriage featured presentations from entrepreneurs and business thinkers, while a Hardware carriage featured gadgets for passengers to try out.
Check out this visualisation that Think Visual created for our readers which offers a peek into the journey:
