The SBP has an excellent supplement about Cork in today’s edition. Hopefully it’ll make it onto their web-site at some stage. Caroline Allen dedicated the entire back page to start-ups and include quotes from CorkBIC, Rubicon Centre, it@cork and Argolon/LouderVoice. The full piece is well worth a read, particularly considering the same message was coming loud and clear from us all. Hopefully someone in Government will read it and get that message!
One quote which didn’t make it into the SBP but which is critical to my thinking:
A bottom-up approach has to be taken, contended O’Neill. We need to give the maximum number of people a chance to succeed, rather than cherry picking.
UPDATE 1: After some old-school cutting and pasting, I have scanned the entire article as a PDF. Enjoy.
UPDATE 2: Some coverage of the piece by Bernie Goldbach.
