I attended the Thursday night Startup Grind session at Bank Of Ireland’s Workbench on O’Connell Street.

The reason being that Cathal Gaffney of Brownbag Films was speaking on his journey in setting up the Oscar nominated animation company and how today it is still developing and expanding as a successful business.

The night opened with a receiption of drinks and pizza, allowing a friendly networking atmosphere to happen between young entrepreneurs, business people and animation students from the local colleges such as LSAD, LIT and UL.

Cathal spoke for an hour with host Pat Carroll and was quite open about the business, the recent announcements from RTE on children’s programming and how he saw the impact of Troy Studios for Limerick and the film industry.

The night ended with the attendance moving to House bar and restaurant to continue the networking.

Keep an eye out for the next Startup Grind event. Well worth checking out.
