Irish currency exchange startup CurrencyFair (of Sebastian Chabal fame) have just released this video offering advice to Irish start-ups and why tech companies should be positive about the Dublin scene.

You may recall the Fundit campaign by DabbledooMusic.

A new Irish-made method of teaching music to kids without them having to wade through quavers and whatnot.


They are 72 per cent towards their funding target with just six days to go.

After Twisted Pepper and Bernard Shaw sessions over the last two weeks, DabbledooMusic will be hosting workshops for all ages at Knockanstockan [Festival] and Castlepalooza over the next two weekends.

She’ll probably hate me for this… but a MASSIVE shout out to my big sis Martina Skelly who won the hotly contested Women in Business Award at last night’s fantastic Startup Awards 2013.
Martina is CEO and co-founded YellowSchedule.com with myself over two years ago.

Testimony to all her hard work -YellowSchedule also won the Online Startup of the Year award last night too!



Yellow schedule?

YOU decide.

A new Dublin-based start-up to “save your social life”.
