Clinch- New Dublin based feature packed hiring software

by: Startacus Admin ~ 21st October 2014
Having endured a particularly harsh recession during the recent global economic crisis, the Republic of Ireland is once again demonstrating an economic growth which far and away exceeds that of most Western nations, and tentatively suggests a return to levels of prosperity which just a few short years ago, looked almost certain never to return.

The March of the Robots

by: Startacus Admin ~ 16th October 2014
If penguins aren't quite your thing then you might like March of the Robots. Not, as some of you may have suspected, a new age techno wildlife documentary featuring the dulcet tones of Sir David Attenborough (marvellous as that would be) but something equally intriguing and wonderfully bizarre. March of the Robots This is a year long adventure mission to create 10000 Robots in the great Northern...

Krüst - Innovative Dublin Bakery Proves a winning recipe

by: Startacus Admin ~ 15th October 2014

Of course, this is also true of some startups who work in traditional industries and inject them with a level of innovation, know-how and passion which makes them able, nay proud, to stand alongside any of your 21st century ne...

Dublin Startup Events

by: Startacus Admin ~ 13th October 2014
Staying at home is clearly not an option. I’m writing this from an over-priced San Francisco basement apartment that seems to have a direct conduit to the ferocious heat of the earth’s molten core.

Instead of being faced with a functional, albeit tedious, static ‘don’t walk’ man, pedestrians at this crossing the centre of the city were treated to a quirky surprise.  Their little inert man had been replaced by a highly amusing dancing one. ...

Ello, 10 Interesting facts.

by: Startacus Admin ~ 30th September 2014
Ello? Could this be it? The one we’ve all been waiting for, the one to challenge Facebook? Not that we have anything against Facebook particularly, in fact we happen to think it's rather fabulous (and our own Startacus Facebook page is used often) but it is a truth, widely acknowledged, that a business with near complete domination of a marketplace leads to stagnation and lack of innovation...
