Join us on November 14th for an evening with Brian Caulfield, an Irish entrepreneur and Partner at DFJ Esprit. Brian has worked on both sides of the table, both as an entrepreneur and an investor - and so has a unique perspective of the Irish tech sector from its early days, through the first dot com boom right up to the present day.
Prior to joining DFJ Esprit, Brian was a partner at Trinity Venture Capital where he sat on the boards of or led investments in AePONA, ChangingWorlds (sold to Amdocs), CR2, SteelTrace (sold to Compuware) and APT (acquired by CSR).
Previously, in 1992 Brian co-founded Exceptis Technologies – sold to Trintech Group in November 2000. In 2001 he co-founded Similarity Systems, a business focused data quality management software company that was acquired by Informatica in January 2006.
Brian was the 2007 recipient of the Irish Software Association’s “Technology Person of the Year” award. In 2010 he also received the Halo Business Angel Network’s “Business Angel of the Year” award.
