Eamonn Carey is the Managing Director at Techstars London. He was previously the Managing Director at Techstars Connection in partnership with AB InBev in New York, and has been a long term mentor on Techstars and other programs around Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
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.
Since then, he has worked with Kiip - helping them win their first clients and establish their footprint and offices in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Currently, Eamonn is a board member and advisor at Lingvist (TS London '14), Paranoid Fan (TS Connection '16) and Motivii and an investor and advisor to over a dozen other companies ranging from foodtech to AI and all points in between (and occasionally beyond).
