Here in Nubiq we are all really pleased to be selected as a finalist for the Irish Technology Leadership Group’s (ITLG) Irish Times Innovation award! The nomination recognises Nubiq’s business and technical achievements and our international potential for growth. This nomination is a credit to all in Nubiq; both the technical and business team.

The award winner was announced last night in Stanford University, San Francisco and went to Changing Worlds, so congrats to them… they were wordy opponents! Helene, our CEO and Director; Willie Donnelly attended the event along with Minister Michéal Martin and the impressive ITLG board which include: 

o       John Hartnett, Senior VP at Palm Inc.

o       Niall O’Connor, CIO of Apple Inc

o       Rory McInerney, Vice President, Intel Corporation

o       Barry O’Sullivan, Senior Vice President at Cisco Systems

o       Tony Redmond, Chief Technology Officer at HP Services

o       John Gilmore, COO, Sling Media Inc

o       Conrad Burke, President & CEO, Innovalight Inc 

The night gave Nubiq a great opportunity to mix with the folk out in San Fran, and we got a fantastic response to the Zinadoo service and what we are up to in Nubiq.  Check out the Irish Times article from last Monday which profiled each company HERE and an article about the event itself HERE (you must be subscribed!).

So it’s on to CTIA in Las Vegas for Nubiq next week. Our CEO will be attending along with some of our board members. Email us at if you would like to arrange a meeting with them.     


Nubiq @ eFactor

Waterford Institute of Technology hosted and organised an entrepreneurial day for their students last Wednesday dubbed “eFactor”. The concept for the day was to promote and encourage entrepreneurship among the students.

Nubiq got invited along to present and mingle with the students. They also used our services to enable students to complete their registration for the event over a customised eFactor mobile website; then send reminder and update texts to those who signed up.

I have to say it was an excellent event – very well run, a great buzz around the day and I overheard some great comments from the students! They had a great variety of activities on the day and there was a really interesting range of speakers; who gave some great, down to earth advice. I think the main message of the day was – ANYONE can be an entrepreneur! With the right dose of enthusiasm and passion for what you’re doing.

The event was covered by RTE 2 news in Ireland (with our own CEO Hélène Haughney featuring!), with lots of local and national press coverage also.

So, the event gets Nubiq’s “Aye Aye” in the vote to make this a yearly event… we might see an increase the number of entrepreneurs coming out of WIT!
