With a combination investment of €150,000 from Wicklow County Enterprise Board and private investors, cloud-based start-up incubator service Nubie.com looks set to grow.
The premise of Nubie.com – itself a technology start-up, having established in 2009 – is to provide one central online service to cater to the advice and information needs of Ireland’s start-up companies.
When a start-up signs up to Nubie.com they receive customised roadmaps for where and how their business should be developing form an Irish perspective, including how to go about creating a business plan and seek funding.
There are also online tools to get started with. From inside Nubie.com you can choose form business templates, set up an invoicing system, organise and track customers using the CRM system and manage your staff. This may be something that plenty of tech savvy start-ups can already do but for the butcher, baker and candlestick maker start-up Nubie.com is a one-stop shop of sorts.
"Whether you are starting a coffee shop or software company, Nubie can help guide you through the process, from writing a business plan to selling your product or service" said Loughlin Nestor, director and co-founder of Nubie.
"We will provide every start-up with a tailored roadmap of what they need to get done, when and how, as well as related services. These services can now be easily and conveniently delivered online at very low cost, helping new Irish business to get off the ground successfully," he added.
