Previously

2015 - 2021 I was a Co Founder of the FoundersBoost Pre-Accelerator (formerly Startup Boost) which has helped 300+ startups raise over $85 million in investment and get to the world's top accelerators to date. Programs take place twice annually across the US, Canada, UK, Europe and Africa.

Additionally, during this time I was part of the team that set up the FoundersBoostX, an online community to help founders anywhere grow their startup successfully. This community platform features unique education tailored to the first steps of a founder's journey with masterclasses from world renowned experts alongside a space for founders to meet and talk.

During 2019 - 2021 I had the opportunity to work with MiddleGame V.C., a Fintech Venture Capital company, as the M.D. of the NadiFin Fintech Accelerator which works with Series A - B fintech companies from around the world. The program prepared these companies to raise significant sums of investment to scale their solutions to new markets.

From 2015 to 2019 I was the E.I.R. at the Bank of Ireland. While there, I worked with an amazing team to build internal programs for corporate innovation. Externally, we ran programs to educate and support entrepreneurs across the country in conjunction with creating physical spaces for founders to use to start and scale their businesses across Ireland and the US.

In this period I organized a series of initiatives and events to help promote and encourage entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship in the tech startup community which included Techstars Startup Weekend (organizer and facilitator), The Startup Digest, Dublin Beat and the Techstars Startup Week.

From 2018 - 2020 I was part of the founding team that brought the volunteer lead Techstars Startup Week to Ireland. This was a week-long showcase of 100's of community organized events alongside a daily conference to introduce people to entrepreneurship and innovation. At its peak Techstars Startup Week Dublin had over 10,000 attendees.
