Americans have the Demo and DemoMobile shows where startup companies show off cool (and not so cool) new technologies to an audience of press, analysts and venture capital investors. Demo has a clever business model, charging companies who want to present their products to this attractive audience. But Europe for now lacks an event of similar stature.
That could soon change with "Innovative Europe 05" coming to Sarragossa, Spain in June. Because the woman behind the event is Demo-producer Chris Shipley.
Just the prospect of the Shipley event is making the competition shake in their pants. Enough so for Red Herring's "Venture Market Europe" event in London this week to deny Shipley access , and even instructed its staff "not to deal with her," reports The Inquisitor.
But as the blogger points out, that might be too much honour for an event that hasn't event debuted. Unless of course the Red Herring event organisers know that they sucks so badly that their show it will disappear unnoticed as soon as a competitor, any competitor shows up.
