Graduate to Attract 3,000 Jobseekers with Tech Start-up Event

A 24-YEAR old graduate looks set to attract 3,000 people to Dublin’s largest tech start-up jobs event.

With demand for skilled workers in tech companies reaching fever pitch, Vincent Lyons has put together a tech start-up jobs event, DubStarts, which matches start-ups and tech workers.

Trinity College graduate Mr Lyons said that the conference, in its second year, emerged when a fellow graduates of Lyons started to struggle when searching for well-paid jobs.

“It’s purely to solve a problem I’ve been seeing,” he said.

“A whole bunch of my friends have been graduating with great educations and expecting to walk into jobs with big consultancies. But often the jobs aren’t there. Meanwhile, I was seeing tech start-ups growing from two to 10 people in a very short period of time. A lot of my friends just didn’t know about these opportunities.”
