Children who began learning coding skills with CoderDojo will take it to the next level at a summit of tech entrepreneurs this summer.

Launch'd is the next step from CoderDojo and Coolest Projects and will run on the same day in June at the RDS.

The event will feature Ireland's top 100 tech start-ups as well as leading international tech speakers.

The aim is for the young people who have produced their own apps to learn from the best in the business about how to start and grow tech businesses.

Coolest Projects founding member Noel King said: "We want attendees to learn new technology techniques, while also gaining valuable insights from founders and innovators who have delivered amazing products to market.

"Launch'd will not only introduce the next generation of start-ups and innovators, it will also validate Ireland as a global technology hub and a magnet for tech businesses and entrepreneurs."

He added: "By bringing start-ups and further innovation into Coolest Projects we will redefine the culture of the participants to launch, and provide support and a pathway to enable this."

To register for free tickets to the event, which takes place on Saturday June 18, see www.launchd.io
