UpStarter is also aimed at anyone in the process of setting up a new company who is looking to find a co-founder. Over 300 co-founders, developers, marketers, designers and students have already registered for the first event on 16 February in Dublin’s 4 Dame Lane.
Companies who will be in attendance at the event and who are recruiting include – Bizimply, NewsWhip, Opsh, HubSpot, FlipDish, UniTuition, Elm Solutions, Dynamic Res and Super Pixel. All the companies with stands are hiring for a variety of positions including operations managers, digital content managers, UI developers, software engineers, project managers, and summer interns.
“The response to UpStarter has been phenomenal. There’s huge demand from start-ups for help in finding employees and interns for a variety of positions at different levels,” said Sean Judge, founder of UniTuition and Accenture entrepreneur in residence. “On the other side, we have people queuing up to get work with some of Ireland’s most innovative companies. Uniquely, this event also provides a platform for those setting up new companies to find a co-founder. We’re already oversubscribed for this event and planning the next one in April.”
Eithne Harley, marketing director, 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 startup community through events like this. We’re very excited to have Sean working with us and his energy, innovation and commitment to the Irish start-up scene fit perfectly with our philosophy of partnering and supporting Ireland’s young companies.”
