Journey of a tech start up
Taking an idea and turning it into a fully-fledged product with mass market appeal is the challenge that many entrepreneurs face. Karl Schweppe, MD & co-founder of Journl, will talk about how the idea for Journl, a private place to manage personal information and organise life, was taken from an idea and turned into a product. The talk will cover the initial idea, its iterations, ambitions as well as the successes and failures along the way. 

Karl is Managing Director and co-founder of Journl. A graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, Karl began his career in print journalism. He then moved into international government relations before embracing digital publishing and software development and rising to hold a  number of publishing, sales and senior management roles in established business and startups.
