Carve Cases, the wooden iPhone case manufacturer, has just secured its second round of investment which will see the company expand to 12 employees by 2014 and export to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
Last month we covered a good-news story about an investment competition with a difference. Emerging startups were invited to pitch their ideas on Twitter using the hashtag #20000yoyos and two winners would be chosen just weeks later, each receiving €10,000 to help get their idea off the ground.
Usually start-up pitches are weeks if not months in the making, but not this one. Entrepreneur turned investor Niall Harbison is inviting start-ups to pitch their ideas in 140 characters or less for the chance to secure vital initial funding.
