The Web Summit might be leaving Irish shores, but another event that could prove critical to the startup sector – Startup Gathering 2015 – is about to land.
Borrowing its title from the hugely successful tourism initiative of 2015, the nationwide event kicks off on Monday October 5 and winds its way through five major Irish cities until Friday October 10. A series of regional events will also take place in smaller towns throughout the week.
The Startup Gathering is about “celebrating entrepreneurs, the change makers, the job creators, the ‘let’s make it happen’ people who launch businesses, bring ideas to life and drive economic growth”, organisers say.
Organised by Startup Ireland, and with support from the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Startup Gathering 2015 is part of the Action Plan for Jobs 2015 and is backed by a host of private and state organisations who work closely with startups, such as Enterprise Ireland, the IDA, Bord Bia and Chambers Ireland.
At Brady & Associates we understand the difficulties start-ups face on the financial side, so we’ve put together a fantastic managed accounts service for fledgling businesses, where fees are fixed for the first three years.
Clients also benefit from our expertise as Chartered Tax Advisers, so they can be sure that all available income is put back into the business. One such client has recently secured string of deals with major multiples, and we’re proud to say that we were with them from the start.
