Eamonn Carey is the Managing Director at Techstars Connection, in partnership with AB InBev and an board member, advisor, mentor and investor in multiple startups and accelerators around Europe.
In the past, Eamonn started, succeeded and failed with several startups in Europe and the Middle East - including Farmvillain - an app which some described as the 'South Park of Facebook'. He first started building games (as an eight year old) to impress girls in the late 1980s. His efforts were unsuccessful. His love for games lived on in spite of that fact.
After that business was acquired by Gamestop, he worked with Kiip - helping them win their first clients and establish their footprint and offices in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
As well as working at Techstars, Eamonn is a board member and advisor at Lingvist, Motivii and Sorry as a Service, where he helps with product, marketing and business development. He also acts as a special advisor at Brandwatch, the leading social monitoring and analytics tool.
