Start-ups to create more than 900 jobs in three years

THREE men plan to create over 20 jobs by cornering the market for hair, nail and other beauty treatments.

Trinity business graduates Cormac McNamara, Ronan Ryan and their pal Ryan Estes have taken on the more traditionally female world of pampering with online booking company, Salonaddict.

Their company is just one of over 53 start-ups that hope to create up to 911 high tech jobs over three years.

It allows people to compare prices and book appointments for beauty treatments. Other start-up companies that announced they would be recruiting include Easy Dry in Dundalk, which produces biodegradable paper towels.

"I guess it is surprising for us to be in this business, but we were three guys looking to start our own business and, when looking at an idea like this, what's important is whether there is demand for our product," said Cormac, who previously worked in real estate in Russia.
