Bloggertone TV talks With Sean O Sullivan, Ireland’s Newest Dragon
Always on the lookout for interesting Entrepreneurs to speak with and learn from, I hooked up with Sean O’Sullivan to find out more about his business ventures and what he has been up to recently.
- MapInfo, a $200 million software and services business headquartered in New York State.
- He established one of his newest ventures, Avego in Kinsale in Ireland, a technology firm that provides Real-time Ridesharing and Vanpooling, and has offices in Ireland, China, and the United States. The Avego App can be downloaded here. A cool aspect of the App is that it tells you how much CO2 you are saving the environment.
- Sean is also Managing Director of SOSventures International, a venture capital and investment management firm. SOSventures has just invested in the hugely popular website Silicon Republic. Previous investments include Harmonix, which is the creator of Guitar Hero, Netflix, and net.Genesis Corp.
Sean, who is credited with co-inventing the term “cloud computing,” is Ireland’s latest Dragon, and he has certainly earned the reputation as successful entrepreneur to join the team on Dragons Den.
I got together with Sean recently to ask him about his background, his involvement in various hugely successful projects, and his experience as the newest Irish Dragon:
