Meet the teenage millionaires at Limerick OpenCoffee Club this Thursday

It’s been such a busy week that I didn’t even get a chance to comment on or congratulate Patrick and John Collison, the teenage brothers who sold their startup company Auctomatic to a Canadian firm last week. It was particularly exciting news for those of us who frequent OpenCoffee in the Collison’s home town of Limerick where they gave a talk on startup life and their Silicon Valley adventure last summer, which was broadcast live to the web  from the Absolute Hotel by Conn O’Muineachain.

Of course Patrick and John have been experiencing the full on media whirlwind all week culminating in a Late Late Show appearance on Friday night which Bernie Goldbach recorded for posterity. [Indeed it was Bernie’s photos from their appearance at OpenCoffee which accompanied stories on the RTE and BBC websites]. So I’m delighted to note that, despite the demands on their time, Patrick will be dropping into Limerick OpenCoffee club again this coming Thursday 3rd April. And I’d like to echo his open invitation to "come join us!".

Remember, OpenCoffee is a free networking event open to all who are interested in entrepreneurship and business. We’ll be at the Absolute Hotel from 11am onwards so please comment here or email me if you’ve never been before and have any questions. Here’s a bird’s eye view map of the venue.
