Friday 20th May, L2.21, Computer Building, 11.00am

Neil has an interesting story to tell about the commercial exploitation of
an idea that started with some project work by three undergraduate computing
students, and a business studies graduate. The idea is in the context of IT
security. Neil promises lots of insider insights into the issues that arise
when striking a deal for Venture Capital.

Neil and his company have just succeeded in raising over 1 Million Euro of
Venture Capital - see
