Bachelor of Commerce, worked in start-ups for over twenty years, including my own, recognised by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer. Despite having a business degree, worked as a software engineer for five years before travelling the world doing systems integrations and, more recently, business development. The past fifteen years has been spent as CEO of a company that I co-founded, during which time I was involved in almost every aspect of establishing, financing and managing start-ups. Particular expertise in software and app-based innovations, but with a broad interest across the STEM disciplines and the arts and humanities.
Currently Interim CEO of the TCD Innovation & Entrepreneurship Hub and acting Executive Director of Blackstone LaunchPad at Trinity College Dublin.
I'm the programme manager for LaunchPad here in Trinity, essentially I help introduce entrepreneurship as a viable career option by supporting new ideas and student ventures. My background is in technology operations and startup community development, I worked for Facebook before joining Trinity and before that I was in Twitter and Google, in the YouTube division.
I helped establish Startup Weekend in Google running two main events. I have also participated in a number of accelerators and programs with my own ideas.
I'm the programme manager of LaunchBox, Trinity’s summer accelerator for student startups, which means I work with, help, support and advise students interested in starting their own company or social enterprise from pre-application stage, all the way to the end of the LaunchBox programme, and beyond.
I have worked in universities in Ireland and abroad on strategic projects around innovation and employability for over four years now. A Trinity graduate myself, I love the work that we do, and I want to meet with and hear from students who have an idea they're passionate about, and see how we can help them to progress it.
