READY BUSINESS PODCAST: Meet the Irish Millennials Taking on the Business World

On this week’s show, the Ready Business podcast was at National Digital Week in Skibbereen where Brian Purcell was joined by a number of high-flying entrepreneurs, including young millennials, where they spoke of the secrets behind their success.

There’s 18 year old Harry McGann who is still in school, and set up his first business, KidTech, at just 15 but has now already moved on to his second business, Trendster, to reach out to his peers to write about their views on the world they’re inheriting.

After just a week studying politics in college, Jayne Ronayne knew it wasn’t for her and set out to develop a business idea which pivoted from a college yearbook to Konnect Again which is an international business alumni platform.

Another UCC graudate is Brendan Finucane who developed his college project into eCanvasser which is a political canvassing software and has also recently set up Civis Connect from that.

And then there is Aoibheann O’Brien, the former investment banker who sstarted the much-touted FoodCloud to redistribute surplus food to charities and local communities.

These are all young Irish businesses who are taking on the world and their Ready Business stories prove that Irish start-ups in the digital economy are thriving.

The Ready Business show, in association with Vodafone, is available every Thursday via iTunes, SoundCloud, Stitcher and Independent.ie. Or subscribe to the RSS feed of the Ready Business Podcast using your favourite podcatcher.
