“It was a real honour for TempBuddy to be selected to represent Ireland amongst the 84 startups competing for the SEUA awards. I am so proud to receive this truly significant award on behalf of the entire team who have brought TempBuddy from concept to a multi-award winning reality. Our vision is to make life easier for the flexible workforce, helping more people find temporary work when and where they want […] To be recognised as the winner for the SEUA social category highlights how innovative and unique our software is.
The awards’ process and ceremony were very well organised and executed. It was a brilliant experience to be at the European Parliament meeting outstanding entrepreneurs and learning about many innovative concepts, as well as to have the opportunity to speak to Michel Servoz, Director of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, and Mairead McGuinness, Vice President of the European Parliament. We would definitely recommend the awards to other startups.”
