Ad Firm Designs a Fun Office for Grownups

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Credit Google with turning the workplace into a gigantic dorm room. After the tech giant opened its Googleplex in 2006, seemingly every startup and creative agency tore down walls and installed a foosball table. But does an office have to look fun to be a fun place to work? Not according to Wieden+Kennedy, which took a decidedly different tack for its New York digs.

The agency, best known for its work on campaigns, has also earned a reputation for daring interior design. A human-size bird’s nest in its Portland, Ore., home earned it a Portlandia spoof. Its New York HQ has none of that whimsy; it is more upscale loft than romper room. Open-plan desks remain, but so do a diverse array of conference spots that accommodate meetings of different styles and lengths — from small, intimate “phonebooths” to large “wide-n-long” conference rooms.

Europe’s largest Start-up Weekend so far just took place in Dublin

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

The largest Start-up Weekend in Europe to date was held in Dublin at the weekend as more than 135 enthusiasts spanning the gamut of business and technology skills got together and created 21 start-ups.

What often gets missed in telling the story of Ireland’s technology industry – when you look beyond the economic powerhouse that is technology, the creation of apps and the ability to just start-up – is the people element.

The sheer imagination, initiative and enthusiasm of people who when their backs are to the wall can do incredible things.

Looking around a room of 135 would-be entrepreneurs and their mentors at the Google Foundry in Dublin last night it impressed me greatly that most of these people were strangers to each other last Friday.

They consisted of a motley crew of people who work in finance, software developers, UX designers, app creators, designers, writers, marketers, salespeople. They were guided by a smattering of seasoned mentors and a crew of Google workers who decided to forego a glitzy annual Google party to work with start-ups instead.

On Friday afternoon the 135 would-be entrepreneurs trooped into a room and within hours close to 60 pitches were whittled down to 21 workable ideas that required producing a full pitch including rollout strategy, customer research, a minimum viable product and a demo of the product.

Not all of them succeeded in having built a workable demo or app, but the whole point of the exercise was to learn how to build a business from an idea and work as a team.

And work they did. Over 52 hours of work went into creating a broad array of apps and business plans spanning property, motors, business networking, audio, mindfulness, e-commerce, photo-sharing, social networking and health.

If there was any criticism it would be that some of the ideas leaned very heavily on the Tinder model, but then again that’s no bad thing and they could still be on the right track. Another criticism would be that more female founders should take part. Only 16pc of the people who took part at the weekend were female, although this was up from last year.

Start-up Dublin is into its third year and is part of the global Up Global movement that has seen 1,500 similar start-up events take place in 700 cities, resulting in 30,000 start-ups.

One of the organisers of Start-up Dublin Gene Murphy explained that from last year’s crop at least five have gone on to receive Enterprise Ireland Funding and some have joined various accelerators.

Startups can project a Professional Image from day 1.

Monday, May 6th, 2013

In today’s climate, your company’s identity and brand have never been more important.

The image we portray sends an important message to our clients, and this is especially critical for start-ups.

First impressions are so important.

Your business logo, your website, promotional materials are all part of projecting a professional image.  Having a Dublin city address will also support this image.  A Dublin headquarters perhaps ?

You can focus on your business, and your phone can be answered professionally.  Your post will be handled and forwarded to you, wherever you are.  You can meet clients in our meeting room – just book it by the hour.  Everyone will think that this is your office.

As a startup, you can be instantly projecting a professional image from day 1.  And if your business grows, you can consider one of our offices in the future – that way, you won’t have to change your business address.
