What our happy clients say
Just wanted to say thanks for everything. Had the final review with EI today and they were very happy and said that the business plan was brilliant. A lot of that was thanks to you. Just a few days ago we also received word that we have being offered investment from the Competitive Startup Fund. Thanks for everything Donncha, definitely one of the best mentors that I have had to date and am very happy with the business plan that I have because of you.

Donncha has been absolutely crucial to my business journey with Allergy Lifestyle. Donncha provided mentoring and invaluable strategic advice and guidance from start up, through the Lean Start up Programme, New Frontiers, CSF and HPSU. I would have no hesitation in recommending Donncha as his expertise, skill sets and ability to work through any problems in a professional, competent manner would be an invaluable asset to any start up.

We were fortunate enough to engage with Donncha through Enterprise Ireland’s New Frontiers Programme in LyIT. As ‘newbie’ business owners, Donncha’s business mentoring and guidance was instrumental in helping us establish our start-up venture. In the space of a few months, his expert commercial advice brought us from an early stage business idea to securing funding and private equity investment to include CSF support from Enterprise Ireland. Our idea is now becoming a reality!
Donncha, thank you so much for all your help, advice and encouragement through our journey so far. We certainly wouldn’t be in the position we are now if it wasn’t for you and we hope to continue working with you well into the future.

Donncha continues to provide superb support to our startup. He was great to work with in preparing financial projections and a business plan which were needed to secure agreements with a key technology supplier and initial customers in the early days. The time spent on business planning gave us a roadmap for growth - it is not going to be easy and having expert external advice is a great confidence booster!
