Events news

I’m going to start a roughly weekly post about upcoming events I think you should be aware of. As many of them as possible will be relevant to startups, Web 2.0 and getting funding. Most of them will be UK/Ireland but some will be European too. Don’t expect lots of info – I’ll just be putting out links for you to check out. Feel free to send me others you think are relevant (no guarantees I will though). So here we go:
