EE 13 - Devan Hughes - Ideas are a dime a dozen, execution is everything.

Like many great Irish business ideas, my current guest had his moment of inspiration over a few pints in a Dublin pub.

Founder of Buymie, serial entrepreneur Devan Hughes joins me this week to reveal his entrepreneur story.

Devan like all great entrepreneurs has tried and failed mutiple times. In this episode, we break down how the lessons learned in his failures, paved the way for the explosive growth of his current company, Buymie.

We discuss how Devan went back to a normal 9-5 job while he perfected the idea for his current business and used his time at Salesforce to hone his skills.

Despite raising over €1 million in funding, Devan is an expert at gureilla marketing and he reveals the tactics he used to get over €3k of free market research and how partnerships with larger companies have helped him grow his business.
