About Eoin:

Eoin Killian Costello has worked on all sides of the business of growth and innovation through startups by:

- Launching them as CEO (Novara Technology, successful exit), Omniserve (sold to management) and Costello Jewellers (his family's business).

- Supporting their growth through his role of managing Ireland's largest startup programme at Dublin Technology University 'Hothouse' Incubation Centre and cofounding Ireland's national startup movement, Startup Ireland. 

- Investing in them as a fund manager at Legal & General Investments UK.

- Studying them as part of his University of Ulster Masters Dissertation on steps to strengthen the startup ecosystem, report presented to the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation.  

A high point for Eoin was leading Ireland's first national startup week, the Startup Gathering 2015, a partnership between Government and some of the largest companies based in Ireland including Bank of Ireland, Intel, Google, Accenture and Bell Labs. The week saw 412 events take place in 22 counties with total attendees of over 19,000+.

Eoin is now working with Ireland's largest bank to bring his experience to put digital at the heart of the regeneration of his local town, Dun Laoghaire, through the Digital HQ clg initiative.
