Whats up at the Dublin Startup Commissioner’s office this week? Well, let’s see…
Derek, our dearly beloved Editor of Dublin Globe has left us for a big new role at RTE.ie.
Our loss is their gain, but promoting great talent like Derek is what were here to do, so Go Derek!!
Wonderfully, Irina, a regular contributor to Dublin Globe, is our new Editor. And just as Derek is pure blue and of Dublin, Irina is brand new, from Bulgaria. Shes been in Dublin 18 months now and weve wanted to work with her ever since our first cup of tea.
Derek and Irina talk Dublin tech and the handover of one-year-old Dublin Globe here.
And theres another new recruit to the Commishs team, Ciaran Casey, the data and research analyst behind our shortly launching TechIreland platform. Welcome, Ciaran! Your work will help Dublin, and Irelands innovative companies tell their stories on the international stage!
Last but not least, Summer has arrived in Dublin, and our office, made of glass and overhanging the Liffey river, has become a draw for Dublins wetsuit divers who jump off our roof to the adulation of a global audience.
In 2013, Motherland Films made a movie about these divers so if you have 3 minutes, sit back and enjoy their story.
