Going from idea or concept to forming a start-up company without previous business experience, we quickly identified that quality mentoring and support would be critical to our success. In that context Liam has been with us from the start and has not only helped us navigate those choppy early day waters, but has provided essential ongoing mentoring, support, and acted as a sounding board at critical junctures. Liam's 'fresh eyes' perspective always yields nuggets that may otherwise have gone unnoticed. Without this level and kind of support, ARQ Asset Solutions would not be where it is today.
ARQ Asset Solutions
As manager of the New Frontiers Programme at the Rubicon Centre, CIT, Liam helped me in getting my business off the ground. Liam provided excellent support and advice on start-up business organisation and pitfalls to avoid. He introduced me to key members of the broader New Frontiers and CIT communities, which led directly to my successful Competitive Start Up Fund (CSF) application. Liam was also instrumental in my success in winning the Best Business Plan Award for New Frontiers 2018.
In his more recent position with UCC, Liam has introduced me to the Irish Marine Industry Network (IMIN) and delegates from Chinese and Asian markets on a recent trip to Ireland. He is currently working on building a relationship with my company Custran, and international marine technology group Kongsberg, which would bring our customs declaration software to a much greater audience through Kongsberg’s digital Kognifai platform. I plan to stay in contact with Liam into the future, as his contribution to my company to date has been critical.
Founder & CEO
Raceix is hugely indebted to Liam Fitzgerald for his support, guidance, insights and championing. We exist in a sector where it can be challenging for a domestic audience to understand our solution or opportunity. Liam’s tangible assistance has directly informed many of our strategic decisions and assisted in the acceleration we’ve unlocked over this past year.
