In this podcast I have a wide-ranging interview with Niamh Bushnell who was recently appointed as Dublin's first ever Start-up Commissioner. Among the topics I cover are: What does the role entail - who is funding it - what are Niamh's hopes for how the role might evolve?
Dublin has been incredibly successful in attracting so many of the world's top ICT companies to locate their European HQ here -how can that be exploited to ensure a vibrant eco-system of start-ups?
What are the barriers to start-ups that you are hearing about? Financial / Infrastructural / Training / Networks etc.
Plus I pay a visit to the Irish Whiskey Museum to sample the capital's newest visitor attraction and learn more about the marketing strategy behind it.
