Everyone loves a great party and that is why Ireland’s number one domain registrar and hosting company Blackinght have announced sponsorship of Suxmas, the holiday party for Irish startups.

The event, which will be held Thursday, December 19, 2013 at Bar Tengu in Dublin, is open to the entire Irish startup community. Billed as an evening of drinks, dancing and great food, SUXmas was created as a way for the startup community, to mingle and get to know one another. The community has responded en mass by selling out the event with over 250 tickets sold.

Fionnuala Healy, CTO of Gotcha Ninjas and founder of SUXmas explains: “The concept of Startup Christmas, SUXmas, is a party for the community by the community. Everyone from the startup community is invited to come together and have a big celebration for surviving the year. There’s no exclusive group or any agenda. It’s simply a mixer where connections can be made to create a stronger more inclusive startup community in Ireland. In that spirit, we are very pleased to have Blackinght as a sponsor as they have been very supportive of creating a rich environment for innovation and inclusiveness to thrive.”

Blacknight CEO Michele Neylon has also been chosen for the Suxmas top 10 “Nice List”, which honors and acknowledges key supporters of the Irish startup community.

Neylon States: “This is the kind of event we love to be involved with. When you work in the tech and startup world, it can be very isolating. There are a lot of long days behind computers without a lot of socializing and the community doesn’t have a lot of opportunities to get out and meet each other. We strongly support the integration of the Irish startup community and we are all for the excuse to do so at a raucous holiday party.”

To maximise the Irishness of the event SUXmas is using technology developed by Irish StartUps, including Eventmama, Tito.io, Stripe (the founders are Irish), The Voucherlink/Tipple.me, and more to be announced.
