Happy New Year Startup Community!
Well 2012 is behind us now and we are at the start of a new year. Last year was a major challenge for many of us, I would like to wish you all a exciting and successful 2013…
The start of a new year is always a great time to regroup, rethink and reposition whatever ship you are in (sinking / taking on water or Steaming ahead!). Personally last year was a challenging one, retail was under severe pressure from a nosedive in consumer spending as everyone tightened their belt. On the other hand a lot of hard work on the online retail side has started to pay off and I am very optimistic and excited about the growth potential in this area for 2013.
One of the highlights of last year was of course the very first Startup Awards! the award ceremony was held in the Burlington hotel on the 24th of May. We were blown away by the quality of the entrants and the sheer positivity on the night was amazing. We are already gearing up for this years awards which we know will be even bigger and better but I can’t tell you too much about our plans just yet!
At Startups.ie we are expanding the size and scope of our operations, to achieve our goals we are going to need some help so I am putting a call out for a part time website Business Development manager to join our team – please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to find out more information on this..
Whatever your hopes and dreams are for the year ahead I wish you all the best, we are here to help in any way that we can, if you would like us to profile your new Startup on the site just get in touch (email@example.com) any specific questions should be posted on the forum where the community can hopefully help you get the answer you need..
With Best Wishes,
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
