I’m an economist who’s been dabbling in the entrepreneurial world for 6 years. I’m the CEO of The Olive Group, which owns and operates Olive Safety, Olive Media, Olive Engineering and The Olive Foundation. I started my entrepreneurial life by co-founding and running a company called iFoods Limited which owned the websites Lookandtaste, Grabmytable, VidVend, FoodandFizz and Twecipe. I left iFoods in February 2010 and joined The Olive Group in April.
I also co-founded VidSchool, acquired by Olive Media, which is a great online tool for schools, corporates and teachers to develop and provide their classes through an online video platform.
I have a BA in Economics, a Masters of Financial Economics and a Masters in Business Studies specialising in Management. I’ve worked with Bank of Ireland and Davy Corporate Finance before burning those bridges by becoming an entrepreneur.
