Not Another Bunch of Flowers!

by: Startacus Admin ~ 15th September 2014
Isn’t it marvellous when someone manages to turn a horrible situation into something wonderful? I’m not talking about “Oh no! I let my bananas over-ripen, time to make some banana bread” kind of terrible, but something truly awful and potentially life changing… something like a cancer diagnosis. That’s what happened to Anikka Burton from Sussex in 2011, w...

Storying Sheffield- Chronicling the memory of a city

by: Startacus Admin ~ 11th September 2014
We have learned many things since the beginning of our 'Startup Cities’ tour, but what seems most prevalent (no matter where we go) is that a city’s value is so much greater than the mere the sum of its parts. Stripped back to their bare bones, all cities are basically the same. Whilst geographical locations and superficial details may vary, when it comes down to it, all cities are ju...

Startup of the Week - Knodium

by: Startacus Admin ~ 10th September 2014
Let’s face it. Working as a team is generally a whole lot easier than going it alone. Whether it helps us all generate more ideas or simply spurs us on that bit more - collaboration is where it’s at! It’s a premise which is at the very core of our latest Startup of the Week. Knodium is a collaboration platform for students enabling them to connect, engage and of course collabor...

Viva la Vita- Fitness on Impulse

by: Startacus Admin ~ 8th September 2014
Do you remember when the average person had about 4 choices when it came to staying fit?  In those days the most adventurous workout that many folk undertook entailed doing a little jogging or some overly enthusiastic housework. Thankfully nowadays, choosing how to keep fit has gone the way of the proverbial kid in the candy shop (if you'll excuse the overt reference to unhealthy foodstuffs)...

Fairytale Characters - What businesses would they run?

by: Startacus Admin ~ 4th September 2014
“A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men” - Roald Dahl Fairy tale characters have little use for the entrepreneurial scene... Cinderella has enough problems picking glass out of her feet without having to worry about the bottom line, Snow White is two busy evading homicidal fruit vendors to care about overheads and Rapunzel has her hands full with split ends and...

Let’s face it. Losing something can be one of the most frustrating things ever. But we’ve all done it. Whether it’s leaving our glasses on the train or our mobile in a café - it’s never nice! And of course there’s no better feeling than getting our lost item back again is there? Not only is there that sense of relief but there’s also the restoration ...

HomeMates- A One-Stop Shop for Home Services

by: Startacus Admin ~ 3rd September 2014
We aren’t ashamed to admit that we’re not very handy. Even if we were there’s very little chance we’d ever find the time to get anything DIY related finished… sadly our home maintenance to-do list fulfills a function which is purely decorative. The problem we face is not a new one- there simply aren't enough hours in the day, and for as long as that issue has exist...

Win a ticket to Dublin’s Web Summit via Startacus!

by: Startacus Admin ~ 3rd September 2014
Many tech / startup themed events flatter to deceive - in fact Startacus have been to a few. But when you say. ‘Dublin. Web. Summit’ (ideally in that order), the ears prick up. You can’t help but think it’s a little different, there’s no need for much of a media spin - but an awful lot bigger and more special. So when the good folk at the Web Summit offered two Start...

Getting publicity for your Startup - 4 more cost free options

by: Startacus Admin ~ 1st September 2014
Last week we highlighted 4 cost free options to get publicity for your startup, small business, or creative concern. And bingo, like all great epics, there must be a sequel, albeit with more explosions, great plot twists, and a great all round tale. Of course, we'd recommend you read the first post first - sequels often make more sense that way don't ya think? Anyhow, forgive all the rambling, but...
