Murfie.com — the Madison company that stores music CDs and lets their owners buy, sell and trade them — has been invited to participate in START, an event being held this week in conjunction with the Dublin Web Summit, which calls itself “Europe’s biggest tech conference.”
The summit, taking place Wednesday and Thursday, boasts more than 200 international speakers, with attendance expected to reach 3,000 people from 50 countries.
This is the first year for START, an invitation-only event featuring 150 “of the world’s most exciting and disruptive startups,” according to the summit’s website.
Murfie co-founder and CEO Matt Younkle said he’s honored to get the recognition.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to network with international business leaders and entrepreneurs and share with them our innovative business model. Of course, we’re also excited to conduct some in-field research on the differences between Irish and Wisconsin beer!” Younkle said in a statement.
Younkle also is the inventor of the TurboTap beer dispenser, launched in 2005.
