BOSS Metrics left the NDRC building again last week and got another fantastic reaction! Our audience this time was the Irish Software Association Investor forum at IBEC and we got short-listed for the final event on the 10th May! Pretty exciting to get to pitch in front of 10 investors and get their feedback on our progress to date.
This event is designed to honour the best and brightest in Ireland, in the development of applications for smartphones, tablets and social media platforms. Â This yearâ€™s Appys were launched on September 12th and the award ceremony will take place in the Mansion House, Dublin 2 at 6.30pm on November the 3rd, 2011.
