Dream Of Starting Your Own Business? Come To The Next AIB Start-Up Academy Event In Dublin

There's a brilliant event for entrepreneurs taking place in Dublin this week.  

The hugely successful AIB Start-Up Academy is now in its second year and the final stop of the nationwide tour is in Opium on Dublin's Wexford Street on Thursday, November 26.

The crowd will be hearing from some of Ireland's leading entrepreneurs, with speakers and pitchers from a number of successful start-ups.


Speakers will include Jennie McGinn, who along with her two sisters created Opsh.com, an innovative e-commerce publisher that lets consumers shop across multiple brands with a single account.

Jennie has a communications degree with fashion journalism cert from the London School of Fashion and has won a lion’s share of accolades including being shortlisted for Ireland's Best Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 and listed as one of the Irish Independent's "Top 30 Under 30."

Also speaking at the event is Bernie Kinsella, founder of worldBOX.ie and managing director of transport and shipping business Wheels We Deliver. Bernie was also a finalist in last year’s Start-Up Academy.

WorldBOX is an innovative lifestyle international delivery service from your doorstep. It allows consumers to ship to 222 countries worldwide and offers web based, transparent pricing, full track and trace and great value.

As well as hearing expert business advice from these two experienced entrepreneurs, guests will also get the chance to listen to three start-ups, who will be pitching their businesses.

Best of luck to Antoine Geerts from Sedito, Daragh Kirby from Groopeze and Philip Martin from Blanco Nino who will all be pitching on the night.
