On this edition of the podcast I discuss the topic of entrepreneuship with Brian Keegan ( pictured with me ) and Orlaith Carmody who are President and Communications Chair respectively of the newly launched Irish Chapter of Entrepreneurs' Organisation. The Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) is a global business network of 8,000+ business owners in 122 chapters and 35 countries. Founded in 1987 by a group of young entrepreneurs, EO enables small and large business owners to learn from each other, leading to greater business success and an enriched personal life. The organisation aims to build the world's most influential entrepreneur community, which aligns with a mission of supporting entrepreneurial education and engaging entrepreneurs to learn and grow.
I begin the show by interviewing founder of new Irish owned Social Platform Phlok, who are planning the creation of 100 new jobs over the coming 18 months following investment of $600,000.
With the investment of $600,000 from private and institutional investors, Phlok will be recruiting over 100 new staff in the areas of Software Development, Sales, Training and Account Management over the coming months across the island of Ireland.
Phlok is a unique rewards platform that offers end-users the opportunity to earn virtual currency as they interact with businesses on Phlok. In this podcast I interview Paul Graham (CEO) to discuss the business model for the company as well as the challenges faced by a serial entrepreneur. Download on the link below.
