STARTUP hub Republic of Work is running a 10-week video series of tips and advice from business owners in order to help inspire potential business owners to achieve their dreams.

The series will have a wide mix of individuals, from a range of backgrounds and businesses, talking about how they set up, kept going and persevered through rough patches.

The series will start with Ronan Murphy, CEO of Smarttech, followed by Jason Woodard, owner of Huckleberry Doughnuts, Jayne Ronayne, co-founder of KonnectAgain, Aidan Duke, owner of Dukes Coffee Company, Paul Prendergast, co-founder of Blink Innovation, Brendan Keary, dealer at Keary’s motor group, Jonathan Healy, broadcaster, Paul Moore, managing director of Rebel Chilli and Raluca Saceanu, marketing manager of Smarttech.

The series will culminate with Donal (DC) Cahalane speaking about why he set up Republic of Work and what he hopes to achieve.

Each clip is under six minutes long and will go live every Tuesday evening at 9pm.

Republic of Work Community Associate Linda Wright said they decided to run the series after meeting a range of passionate and determined individuals who were setting up their own businesses.

“The idea is to give these people the best information possible from people with experience in order to be well educated in how to succeed in business.

“It is all about sharing the knowledge and offering a helping hand.” Speaking about Republic of Work, Ms Wright said business is going well. “Things are great, we are very busy.

“We are hosting a lot of events here and workshops.

“We are not at full capacity yet, we are still taking in people, so it is worth mentioning the unlimited free coffee in the office!” 

The video clips can be found on Republic of Work’s Facebook, Twitter social media accounts and their YouTube channel.
