We first reported on TrustEv back in February of this year. They were a small startup just moving into their ground floor offices in the Redbrick Bessboro Business Park. Back then – on Valentines Day – they had a novel competition, and now they have another.

Europe’s largest technology event, the Dublin Web Summit takes place on October 30th/31st and Cork stands to be well represented in the nearly 10,000 expected to attend, thanks to the efforts of a collective of local Technology Companies.One day before the event start a specially commissioned, charter train dubbed tthe “StartUp Express” will depart Kent Station, Cork to transport nearly 180 entrepreneurs, businesspeople, technologists, students and general startup junkies from the region to Dublin.

On board the train, passengers will have the opportunity to take part in a host of networking and activities in three specially designated carriages. And best of all, it’s completely free for passengers with all costs being covered by Cork technology companies – VoxPro, PCH International and Trustev.

Tickets are available from http://startupexpress.net/
