The Mill Enterprise Hub is opening its doors during Drogheda Fleadh Cheoil 2019 to offer hotdesks for those wishing to work remotely, at a discounted daily rate of €10 during the Fleadh week of 12th August to 18th August. This will particularly suit locals who normally commute to Dublin but wish to have extra time to access the full programme of musical and cultural activities during Fleadh Cheoil. It will also be ideal for visitors to Drogheda that need short-term access to a high-tech co-working space including teleconference facilities.

According to Breanndán Casey, Business Development Manager of The Mill “The Fleadh hotdesk offer is a great opportunity to experience our friendly and supportive entrepreneurial community, network with local business owners over a cup of coffee, avoid the normal commute to Dublin, and enjoy our facilities, all within walking distance of the town centre and all it has to offer during Fleadh Cheoil. Drogheda and surrounding region has the highest commuter traffic in Ireland – we hope this experience will convince local entrepreneurs and nascent entrepreneurs that The Mill and Drogheda can offer all the supports needed to start and grow an International business, and help to build a self-sustainable regional economy”.

The Mill is one of Ireland’s leading Enterprise Hubs and currently hosts over 30 startups and expanding businesses. The facilities include hotdesks, offices, high-speed internet, meeting and conference rooms, phonebooths, showers, roof-garden, disabled access, and a modern kitchen with free Nespresso coffee. The Mill prides itself on working with the local community and is the official Enterprise partner for Drogheda Fleadh Cheoil which has seen over 400,000 visitors during the course of the week of last year’s Fleadh Cheoil festival.

The Mill is proud to be the point of contact between local entrepreneurs and various startup communities, such as Louth Local Enterprise Office, Drogheda Chamber of Commerce, and local educational institutions such as DKIT and DIFE.

On Friday, 17th May, the Drogheda Young Innovators (DYI) Competition Final for secondary school students took place at Coca-Cola International Services offices in Southgate Shopping Centre. Fifteen shortlisted projects were reviewed in detail by the judges from Coca-Cola International Services, Fitz Scientific, State Street, and The Mill Enterprise Hub. The overall winners were a team from St Mary’s Diocesan school who impressed judges with their social enterprise project, “Music and Memory”.

Prizes were also awarded in each of the three categories (Science/Technology, Business, and Social Enterprise) for both individual and team entries. This is the sixth year of the awards which focus on all aspects of Innovation, and has become an integral part of the local school curriculum. Organised by a voluntary group of local business leaders, teachers, and The Mill Enterprise Hub, the competition challenges Drogheda’s students to think about an innovating career in science, social enterprise, or business. This year also saw applications from Phase Innovate, a Not for profit Organisation that provides technology entrepreneurship education for the underrepresented communities in tech through hands on training and structured mentoring system.

Over the course of the competition, the winning students from “Music and Memory” visited patients with Alzheimer Disease in Tredagh Lodge Day Care Centre in Drogheda and St Mary’s Nursing Home, and created personalised music playlists for each patient in order to demonstrate the ability of music to combat memory loss and restore a self to those suffering from above disease and dementia. The judges were extremely impressed that the community of Drogheda got behind this initiative by donating unwanted CDs, MP3 players and money through a Go Fund Me page. The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland officially recognised “Music and Memory” when their CEO interviewed students on LMFM radio station.

According to Breanndán Casey, BDM of The Mill Enterprise, “The Music and Memory project has been a great success and the students are now working with twelve other schools to roll out the concept across the country. This competition has gone from strength to strength each year, and with 65% of applications in the Social Enterprise category, we can see the level of interest from local teenagers in topics like mental health, environment and recycling, which is very inspiring, to say at least. We work with our partners State Street, Coca-Cola International Services, East Coast Bakehouse, and Fitz Scientific to visit all nine schools in the region to highlight the innovation that is currently occurring locally, and to ensure that students have an opportunity to flex their creative muscles”.

“It was great to have the diverse range of ideas this year, and more importantly, to see how the students have worked on their ideas over the past three months”, said Anna Keller of Coca-Cola International Services, “We also had 60 students attend a Workshop at The Mill in April which gave students an opportunity to work on their projects and receive real feedback from students and judges. It was great to see last year’s Business category winner, ‘Makes Cents’ from Sacred Heart school return to give an inspiring talk on how they recently launched their teenage prepaid card with support form Prepaid Financial Services in Navan ”.

During the final, Julie Plunkett of Coca-Cola International Services launched their 2019 “Thank You Fund” which offers €100,000 of support for inspirational youth projects across Ireland. Grants of €5,000, €10,000 and €30,000 will be awarded to the winning projects. The Coca-Cola Thank You Fund has supported projects including community, social and education programmes aimed at youth, healthy and active lifestyles, and environmental leadership. To date €955,000 has been given to 83 non-profit organisations across the island of Ireland.

 The 2019 winners Drogheda Young Innovators who received their certificates and cash prizes included:

  • “Music and Memory” – Overall winner of DYI 2019, St Mary’s Diocesan School
  • “Breagain”– Business Group Category, Ballymakenny College
  • “Randomly Marbled” – Business Individual Category, Drogheda Grammar School
  • “Live My Life” – Social Enterprise Group Category, Phase Innovate

Anne Reilly founded Paycheck Plus in 2005. Her vision was to provide  high class payroll outsource services tailored to meet her clients’  requirements. Anne’s wealth of knowledge in payroll services and  corporate governance stems back to her days lecturing with the Irish Pay  roll Association (IPASS) and receiving a Diploma in Company Direction from the Institute of Directors (IoD) in 2013.

Previously Anne worked with Blue Chip companies such as Unilever and Heinz and in the educational sector.
Anne’s numerous qualifications and depth of experience in the payroll outsource industry gives her invaluable insight as to how payroll should be operated in the most efficient and compliant manner while her knowledge in corporate governance issues ensures Paycheck Plus is a world leader in provision of payroll outsource services.

Alma devised a concept aimed at initiating a sea change in farm safety attitudes, enabling communities to build safer futures on farms. AgriKids was born and officially launched in June 2015. Alma believes her engaging approach to farm safety education will serve to continually empower children to be safer farmers in the future. The approach also requires and includes the input of parents and guardians, thus sharing the learning outcome with all.

‘Making Stuff Up for a Living’ – Oisin Mc Gann

Born in Dublin, Oisín McGann spent his childhood there and in Drogheda, County Louth where he studied at St.Olivers Community College. Refresh Boyne and The Mill are delighted to have him back in Drogheda for this talk.

He studied at Ballyfermot Senior College and Dun Laoghaire School of Art and Design, and went on to work in illustration, design and film animation. He now lives back in Ireland and works full time as an author and illustrator.

In 1992 he dropped out of college to set himself up as a freelance illustrator/artist, serving the publishing and design industries. In 1997, he took up a position as Background Layout Designer for Fred Wolf films, working on the animated series of Zorro. After completing his contract, he decided to expand his horizons and left for London in February 1998 to seek his fortune. He found gainful employment as a security guard, watching over trains and then hospitals.

In January 1999, he joined the M&M Consultancy, a small advertising and design firm, as art director and soon expanded into copy writing. After three and a half years of working in advertising he became increasingly concerned for his immortal soul. He returned to Ireland in the summer of 2002 much as he had left – with no job, no home and some meagre savings. He set himself up as a freelance illustrator once more, before getting his first books published in 2003.

He has written and illustrated numerous books for all ages of reader, including the Mad Grandad series, The Forbidden Files series, and eleven novels, including The Gods And Their Machines, Small-Minded Giants, and his steampunk trilogy, The Wildenstern Saga.

In 2014 Oisin won the European Science Fiction Society Award, given to a writer in recognition of recent works. His books have been sold in the US, Canada (in French), France, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Denmark, Slovenia, Romania, Portugal, Turkey, Brazil and Japan.

Oisin will speak on:

– How his career has developed over the past 15 years

– Discuss how reading (and publishing) is changing

– Technical / Digital publishing & creativity

– Pros and Cons of trying to earn a living from illustration and writing

– The need to encourage creativity and reading in children.

 

Date: Wednesday, 28 November, 19:00 – 21:00

Do you ever complain that you don’t have time to read? The Mill Enterprise Hub launched the Drogheda Business Book Club on Thursday, October 18th at 5:30pm which focuses on ‘Non-Fiction for Busy People’. The club is open to the general public and the main focus will be on reading and discussing a combination of the latest business books alongside acknowledged classics on Strategy, Innovation, Business biographies, and a plethora of other relevant business headings.

The Business Book Club will follow the normal book club format but will also include an online forum. A monthly book will be chosen by members of the group and a discussion will then take place at the next meeting on the merits of the book and whether it is relevant to your business or workplace. The online forum will enable members to discuss the book between meetings and assist to keep readers motivated.

“We are confident that everyone can read more if they belong to a Business Book Club,” says Anna Kurtisa of The Mill Enterprise Hub, “we are here to guide members through the world of business books and advise them on the most efficient reading practices, so that they can read at least 1 book a month even with a busy working schedule. It’s crucial that local entrepreneurs and startups stay informed of the latest ideas, and this will be  a fun and relaxed way to do so. The club is open to  anyone interested in business from students to startups and seasoned managers and owners”.

The 1-hour introductory session on Thursday, 18 October, gave the group a chance to discuss the format and time of future meetings and the process of monthly book-picking, as well as to learn more about effective reading practices. There is no cost to attend the meetings.

On Thursday, 30 August, The Mill Enterprise Hub in Drogheda launched its official strategy, highlighting its ambitious Action Plan for 2018-2020. One of the priorities in the new strategy document is to encourage highly-skilled locals who are commuting to Dublin to avail of the supports and entrepreneurial community spirit at The Mill to create new startups.

30/08/2018 – Alan Costello, Chairman of The Mill Enterprise Centre, speaking at the Strategy Launch.

According to Breanndán Casey, Manager of The Mill “The 2016 census shows that up to 33% of the local population are commuting daily to Dublin, often up to three hours per day. This is an incredible waste of energy, and The Mill is here to support those individuals who have the skills and desire to work for themselves and create a scalable high-value business”
The overall focus of the new strategy plan is to increase their role in economic development in the NorthEast & nationally. The plans include attracting ambitious startups with international potential, developing an accelerator programme, and to continue to create new innovative initiatives such as the M1 Payments Corridor programme which is developing the NorthEast as a Fintech Hub. The Mill will also continue to strengthen its existing relationship with regional economic development support agencies including Enterprise Ireland, DKIT, DCU, and the Louth and Meath Local Enterprise office.

30/08/2018 – The Board of The Mill Enterprise Centre with Dr. Michael Mulvey (centre back), President of DkIT at the Strategy Launch.

Dr.Michael Mulvey, President of DKIT, officially launched the Strategy Plan “DKIT is a long-time supporter and Board member of The Mill. This plan recognises that we need to further develop the NorthEast as a standalone economic zone whilst capitalising on our proximity to Dublin and Belfast, and on the large highly-skilled population within our region”.
The Mill opened its doors to start-ups in 2014 and has since become the main Hub for the accelerated creation & growth of healthy new enterprises in the South Louth, East Meath and wider Drogheda area region. It currently houses 31 companies ranging from startups to emergent FDIs who currently employ 83 employees.

30/08/2018 – at the launch of The Mill Enterprise Centre’s strategy launch are (from left) Manager Breanndan Casey, the President of DkIT, Dr. Michael Mulvey, Co-Chairpersons of The Mill, Gail McEvoy and Alan Costello.

2017 saw the opening of a 750m2 extension of The Mill which was the culmination of a ten-year project that successfully merged the best of public and private support for entrepreneurs. Louth County Council were instrumental in getting the project off the ground, and Louth LEO, Leader, and Enterprise Ireland contributed to start-up costs. Critically, The Mill were supported by Drogheda Chamber of Commerce, and local businesses who contributed circa €350,000 in philanthropic donations to the project.

30/08/2018 – Dr. Michael Mulvey, President of DkIT speaking at the Strategy Launch.

The Mill offers an integrated mix of space, mentoring, learning, group dynamics and supported ‘ambition’. The Mill is determined to capitalise on their success to date by continuing to develop innovative projects such as the M1 Payments Corridor, Illuminate, Drogheda Young Innovators, and by encouraging the development of networks and support structures for small businesses. The Mill also played a key role in starting the new ‘M1 Drogheda Chamber’ Skillnet which offers local subsidised training to SMEs across all sectors along the M1 region.
