A GROUND-breaking event entitled ‘Beyond the Internet of Things – How to harness the next wave of digital technology and investment’, takes place at  Páirc Uí Chaoimh on January, 22nd.

It’s being hosted by Nimbus Research Centre, Ireland’s largest cyber-physical systems and internet of things research centre based at Cork Institute of Technology, in collaboration with SteriTrac.

They are a new company in Ireland, founded by Matrix IT, which provide medical implant tracking technologies to the European market.

The Páirc Uí Chaoimh event offers a unique opportunity for multinationals, SMEs, start-ups, entrepreneurs and academics to hear what international, battle-tested entrepreneurs, technologists, investors and dedicated researchers expect from the next wave of technology innovation and investment, and to learn how their organisations can drive profit from it.

Headlining the event, direct from Silicon Valley, is Vitaly M Golomb, world renowned venture capitalist, serial entrepreneur, best-selling author, and one of the gurus behind HP Tech Ventures, the corporate venture arm of Silicon Valley’s original start-up that focuses on global, early-stage investments in frontier technology.

Vitaly will bring his deep knowledge and experience to young entrepreneurs and corporate leaders alike to unleash their innovation and set them on the path to winning the future. ‘We are in the midst of the next industrial revolution where entire industries will be transformed in the next decade,’ he said. 

‘At Beyond the Internet of Things, I will provide an in-depth view of next-wave technologies that Silicon Valley VCs are investing money in and how you should be investing your time.’

Among the array of international speakers, Internet of Things TED talk master, Professor John Barrett, will open the event with his insightful views on how the Internet of Things and beyond can shape our future. Early-stage advisor, UK technology market expert and founder of ConCap Ltd, Stuart Hillston, will also be on hand to advise tech companies on how to develop and articulate a commercial strategy that appeals to investors and to outline the stepping stones essential for businesses to reach international markets.

Standard tickets are priced at €120. In order to promote and support Ireland’s vibrant start-up industry, there are limited free tickets for start-ups. Entry will not be permitted to those without a ticket. Tickets are available at http://events.cit.ie/indexcfm?page=events&;eventId=316
