Founder, Evervault

Tech entrepreneur Shane Curran first devised the idea that became Evervault while he was still at school two years ago, as part of his winning submission for the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition.

Now, Evervault is building a data protection solution aimed at developers, by way of an API, which aims to bake data protection into the app from the start.

The Dublin-based start-up recently raised $3.2m in seed funding from investors, including Sequoia Capital and Frontline Ventures, to develop its cloud-based secure-processing system, which takes privacy away from compliance departments and turns it into product.
