45" Catch up with AwakenHub, shout for further applications for the SheGenerates Accelerator Light...Listen to Episode 54.
3.00" Diarmaid Mac Colgáin, co-founder Concept Dairy, on his new app, useful for dairy farmers and processors to see, and lock in, the best market prices. The app uses Diarmaid's extensive knowledge as a commodity trader in the UK for many years. Self funded to date, he's keen to talk to 'smart money' (must have serious connections into world dairy and other food commodity markets) but more so, he'd like introductions to processors across Europe and eventually the US. Intriguingly he also says his app can be adapted to trade other farming commodities, so we may see Cavan pig farmers selling pork belly futures, a la Wall St.? Diarmaid also rowed for Ireland, with medals to prove it!
Two 'hire in a heartbeat' choices for Diarmaid, McKenzie Scott, philanthropist, ex-hedge fund manager, ex-Jeff Bezos and Bill Winters, a former wunderkind at JP Morgan, the man who matured the derivatives market.
Update on Stephen McPeake and Civic Dollars (Episode 45).
23.00" Dr. Luke Kelly and Dr. Declan Kelly, of Eolas Medical, a software that "allows hospitals to have a single source of truth for their medical knowledge". The IgniteNI backed company has already raised £2 million, but that won't be the end of it, as they have world ambitions. They're already in 40 hospitals, they're generating revenue, and they want TeamGBS to introduce them to other hospital groups around the world.
Their 'hire in a heartbeat'? Bob Brisk, cardiologist plus a PhD in AI - as you do!
45.00" Trinity College Dublin has left Dublin 2! They've opened up operations in Wexford, Athlone and Galway...all is explained. Gillian Roddie explains what TCD Tangent is doing and who should pop onto their courses that gives you a TCD parchment on completion, plus the opportunity to throw a mortar board skyward!
Courses can be free and you'll have to listen to find out who gets to get on these free, business related, courses. Marie Vahey, an alumna, sings the praises of the courses and explains how Tangent has changed her business fundamentally.
Eventually they chose John Rocha and David Attenborough as their hires in a heartbeat...
