Senior executives from the world’s leading technology companies and some of Ireland’s most successful entrepreneurs are due to come together for Techovate 2012, a business event in the Wexford Opera House on March 21 and March 22.

The event will offer Irish businesses of all sizes and stages of development an opportunity to interact with and learn from senior executives of the world’s most successful companies including Microsoft, Google, IBM, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Techovate 2012 will also feature Ireland’s leading entrepreneurs telling how they made it happen, including Terry Clune of Kilkenny-based Taxback.com, David Walsh of Netwatch and Fred Karlsson of DoneDeal. Organised by Innovation Wexford and The Fuse Initiative, the conference came about after a group of entrepreneurs travelled to Silicon Valley and knocked on doors to forge links with the diaspora in Northern California to help develop growth within the Irish SME sector.
