Cool New Dublin Restaurant Sober Lane Looks For Staff Through Snapchat

Snapchat has been around for a while now and we just love seeing all the innovative ways that companies are coming up with for using the hit app. With a core user base of 13 to 25 year olds. It is a great way to get your message directly on front of your target audience. Which is exactly what already established Cork based bar and restaurant Sober Lane has done to announce it has officially hit the big smoke. 

We saw this tweet from Sober Lane yesterday just as it started picking up traction and we’re super excited to see how it took off across the Irish social scene and media. Sober Lane are hiring staff but are only going to take applications via Snapchat. 

Check out what Ernest Cantonlin owner of Sober Lane had to say when talking to Newstalk yesterday afternoon.

Eimear McCormack to Mentor at Startup Weekend Dublin

The Managing Director of B*Different, Eimear McCormack is set to mentor at Startup Weekend Dublin 2013. Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 400 past events in 100 countries around the world in 2011.

The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in over 200 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Eimear is very much looking forward to meeting and mentoring the budding entrepreneurs in all aspects of digital marketing and general marketing! McCormack said “It’s fantastic to be involved as a Mentor for such a prestigious event, I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with the teams”.

The event will be held in Google Ireland in Dublin from the 7th-9th of June and you can register for the event by clicking here.
