One of the challenges of growing your startup is knowing which technology to work with.

We (and our clients) work with some of the leading online software and can help recommend and support you in your choices.



CEO, Fergal O’Connor has helped thousands of SMEs over the last 25 years make minor improvements to their advertising that had a huge impact on their business.

Internal challenges for SMEs when advertising include smaller budgets than their big brand competitors, so you have to fight clever.

Many SMEs lack marketing resources, no competitive analysis, little or no software or technology to streamline your advertising process and limited time. Buymedia’s software arm’s business with the best insight and experience available.

A startup doesn’t have to have an accountant but its very good idea. The monthly cost of startup accounting isn’t much and the value is more than made up in avoiding mistakes and getting time back the valuable time you need to focus on making sure your startup is a success.

You’ll also have access to expert business startup advice to guide you through this challenging phase and avoid common pitfalls.

You can start by downloading this complete guide to small business grants in Ireland. Select the grant that interests you and follow the steps on the appropriate website. You can also speak to us for further assistance.

The lean startup methodology is the strategy of testing your business concept with a minimum viable product (MVP) before fully launching it or scaling your business. Test your MVP with a target audience, measure feedback and learn.

Startups fail for a number of reasons, the most common ones being:

  1. Lack of demand for a product
  2. Run out of funds / poor cash flow management
  3. Beaten by competitors
  4. Costing & pricing errors
  5. Lack of proper market research
  6. Wrong choice of partners or investors
  7. Bad marketing
