Kinsale Rocks to the Entrepreneur Experience

5th April 2012- The Entrepreneur Experience rocked Kinsale from Friday March 30th to Saturday March 31st. The great and the small descended on Kinsale for an incredible weekend of openness, sharing of ideas and business advice. Sean O’Sullivan, SOSventures and recently on RTE’s Dragons Den was a surprise guest at the Entrepreneur Experience dinner, also attended by Minister for Small Business John Perry TD. Sean gave the closing keynote presentation on ‘The Entrepreneurs’ Mindset’ on Saturday. He shared inspiring thoughts on his experience in the fields of conflict and in business.

Sean O’Sullivan, SOSventures, commented that “I loved the Entrepreneur Experience. It reaffirms the things all successful entrepreneurs know: leadership drives success, and leadership comes through relationships and team development. The Entrepreneur Experience gives entrepreneurs a leg-up on living a more vital life.”

Joining us on the Saturday was also our youngest Entrepreneur, Harry Moran (13), developer of his PizzaBot game. Harry gave a short presentation of his success with CoderDojo and becoming the world's youngest Mac App developer.

The Entrepreneur Experience is an exclusive deep coaching session where over 24 hours, 23 Emerging Entrepreneurs from all areas of business were coached by 24 of Ireland’s most successful business leaders. Each of the 23 companies is at a different stage of development, including early stage, investor ready and companies scaling and growing.
