PODCAST: The Small Business Show (30/04 - 06/05/14)

Part 1: Camara is an International organisation dedicated to using technology to improve education and livelihood skills in disadvantaged communities around the world. With better education they expect these communities to break the cycle of poverty they find themselves in. Founded nine years ago in Dublin, Ireland the organisation has built a proven model of ‘education delivery’ that is both sustainable and highly scalable. Maureen O’Donnell talks about delivering on their promise and their new three year plan to encompass two million children.

Part 2: Cartoon Saloon is an Irish Animation Studio based in Kilkenny. It was recently nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature film. It began as an informal partnership between a group of animators brought together by Paul Young and Tomm Moore in 1999. Cartoon Saloon has since grown into a multi-award winning animation and illustration design studio. Paul talks with Kehlan about their creations and the business model behind animation.

Part 3: Temptster helps bars, restaurants and clubs sell their unused capacity in real time. Restaurants always have excess capacity and over 40% of hotel beds are empty on any given night. Temptster is the smarter way to approach this problem by matching the merchant’s excess supply with consumer’s demand in real time. Ollie Fegan explains how they are branching out into the cinema world now what that will mean for their business in the future.

Part 4: Based in Dublin Ireland, VIDIRO are an award winning Audiovisual Technology Company with specialisation in the area of computer vision, media processing and big data analytics. VIDIRO specialises in Video and Audience Analytics and the delivery of bespoke solutions for highly specialised multimedia applications.
