TechBrew is back! Join us for a bite and a beer and an informal evening of networking with technology leaders. 

The theme of this TechBrew is 'It's All About the Money'. We will be joined by a panel of well-seasoned entrepreneurs who will speak to us about their financing journeys - both the challenges and the opportunities. 

This event is free to attend (registration essential) and open to both Technology Ireland members and non-Technology Ireland members. 

TechBrew is kindly sponsored by Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet.
