Want To Be Your Own Boss? This Is Why You NEED To Go To The Wexford AIB Start-Up Academy Event

If you’re a budding entrepreneur and you haven’t made it along to one of the AIB Start-Up Academy events, this is your chance now to start networking with some of Ireland’s top start-ups.

Kicking off on Wednesday, September 30th from 6.30pm, join some of Ireland’s most creative start-ups in The Sky & The Ground Bar, Wexford.

Taking a spin down south to Wexford, foodie start-ups Michael Kelly and Kevin Dundon will be giving you a taster of how they branched out to be their own boss.

Founder of GIY and hacker grower Michael will give his tips on how to make your passion your profession. Having written three books on food and self-sufficiency, Michael gave up his career in the IT industry to pursue his passion with his wife and kids, having won countless awards and being granted funding in the meantime.

The second speaker on the night will be Kevin Dundon. One of Ireland’s top chefs, Kevin will share his expertise in building the renowned brand associated with his Dunbrody Country House Hotel, in County Wexford, which also houses the Dunbrody Cookery School.

Finally, joining the pitchers that evening will be Christine Meehan, pitching The Natural Health Store – a family-run health store in the heart of Wexford's busy Main Street.
