Start Strong: Podcast with Seán Keyes of The Currency

As part of our StartStrong podcast series, Partner and Co-Head of our Start Strong team, John Neeson and Associate, Donncha Sexton were joined by Seán Keyes, Finance Correspondent with The Currency who shared some insights on some interesting differences between the start-up ecosystems in Ireland and the Bay Area, in particular how the large multinationals represent a talent factory for start-ups in the States relative to the “talent war” facing Irish early stage companies. Sean outlines what lessons we can learn from the “start-up capital of the world”, particularly regarding the effective deployment of employee share incentive packages.
