26 May Ireland – Day 6 – Teams

The three student teams spent the day working with the start-up companies in Belfast and Derry.  I took the train to Derry today, and visited with the team at Modern Democracy.  At the Science Park in Derry, I “bumped” into Graine Kelly, the CEO of Bubble Bum!  She was a student-favorite speaker when we first ran the Ireland course here in 2011.  I am happy to report that she and her company are going stronger than ever!

IMG_2634The teams wrap their projects tomorrow with presentations to the CEO’s and their team at the following companies:
  1. Siobhan Donaghy CEO of Modern Democracy in Derry.
  2. Ian Scott, CEO of Taggled in Belfast.
  3. Dan Loughlin, CEO of IRP Commerce in Belfast.
All the CEO’s have been quite gracious hosts, and I can’t wait to see how all this is processed and presented by the students to the Denver audience of business leaders on June 15th!
In the meantime, you can see what they students are experiencing in real-time via their blogs:
