“The demand from jobseekers for an event to connect with some of Ireland’s most innovative companies has grown massively – UpStarter provides students and experienced hires with a unique platform to do this that’s unlike any other recruitment fair” says Sean Judge, organiser of UpStarter and Accenture Entrepreneur in Residence. “We hosted 300 people at our first event in February and we expect to have over 1000 in October.”
Eithne Harley, Marketing Director for Accenture said, ““One of the reasons that we’ve created an Entrepreneur in Residence for Accenture is so that we can further our support for the start-up community through events like this. His energy, innovation and commitment to the Irish Startup scene fit perfectly with our philosophy of partnering and supporting Ireland’s young companies and is demonstrated in the phenomenal growth that UpStarter has experienced to date.”
Darragh Kirby of Groopeze had a stand at the June event and is returning again in October – “We attended our first UpStarter event earlier this year. At it we found a super intern who is now becoming our next full time employee. We are looking forward to the next UpStarter event in October” remarked Kirby.
