For the past few months, I’ve been working with Digital Crew Ltd. and, especially, Eoghan (Eugene) O’Leary in relation to Akari Software. Akari is the name for Digital Crew’s suite of software aimed at managing and streamlining the process of Curriculum design, approval and publication for Higher Education Institutions.
Having worked through the planning, operational and legal issues involved in spinning out, we’re now in a position to raise €500,000 in funding from private sources and (hopefully) EI.
Akari is an unusual startup – it has products, customers and revenues 😉 In fact, that’s what attracted me to it in the first place. I’m looking forward to a crazy few weeks while we contact, meet and pitch to various funders. If anyone out there is interested in hearing more, please contact me.
