Irish sovereign fund invests in online sales platform

first_imgIreland’s sovereign development fund has joined a $50m (€46.9m) equity raise by sales platform InsideSales.com, which will see the creation of 120 jobs in the country.In addition to funding from the €8.1bn Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF), the website also attracted support from Microsoft and existing venture capital investors as part of the latest round of fundraising, which brings its total capital to $250m.In a statement, InsideSales said its long-term goal was to create a centre of excellence for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in Ireland, with plans to hire 120 staff across product development, engineering and sales once a suitable location for the office is decided on.Eugene O’Callaghan, the ISIF’s director, said the fund was pleased to welcome InsideSales to Ireland’s “flourishing” technology community. O’Callaghan added: “This investment is well aligned with the ISIF’s mandate, with the key benefits to the Irish economy being the targeted creation of more than 120 high-quality jobs over the next three years.”InsideSales.com’s chief executive Dave Elkington underlined the firm’s commitment to opening an office in Ireland, stressing that the AI technology at the heart of the sales platform would be unique among Ireland’s technology companies.“We’re not only looking to hire some of Ireland’s best and brightest technology graduates,” said Elkington, “but also to help build a new, highly skilled industry in the region.”The creation of jobs is but one of the metrics employed by the ISIF to measure how successfully its investments are at stimulating Irish economic growth.In an upcoming issue of IPE, O’Callaghan said the fund had recently begun expanding its impact metrics beyond measuring job creation to be “a bit more verbal, a bit more qualitative, a bit more case-study driven”.Its most recent economic impact report, covering the six months to June 2016, estimated that nearly 19,000 jobs had been created through the ISIF’s activities but also that the jobs created paid employees €657m in wages last year.For more on the ISIF’s investment strategy, see our interview with Eugene O’Callaghan in the February issue of IPElast_img read more

Beauty: Eyelash lifts explained – why they’re a real eye-opener

first_imgBeautician Lorraine Quinn from Beauty at the Lodge Ballybofey reveals why lash lifts are the hottest trending treatment:You’ve probably heard about the new-age Lash Lifting sweeping the beauty industry. It’s the hottest Lash treatment in the celebrity world, with beauty bloggers agreeing that it’s the best treatment ever!The Lash Lifting Treatment is everywhere right now. Our clients are loving it. People who have never even been in a lash lounge are flocking to get lifted, Ex-Lash-Extension-Lovers are returning for this new method that gives results without the maintenance. The Lash Lift is here to stay, so if you’ve not already tried it, here are some reasons why you should. The Lash Lift is the revolutionary lash phenomenon that reveals your natural lashes in all their glory. It’s about knowing your eyes will be the centre of attention, without you having to do a thing. Make the most of what nature gave you with the length, volume and lift effect.If you’re looking for a way to elongate, enhance and exaggerate your natural lashes, then Lash Lifting is the answer. We are giving 10% off on Elleebana Lash Lift Treatments at Beauty at the Lodge this month, visit us on Facebook here to book.The Lash Lift permanently curls your natural lashes for up to 8 weeks with no maintenance required, meaning people who want some extra oomph without the commitment of extension upkeep, now have a service just for them. HOW DOES IT WORK?The structure of a single hair is made up of 3 parts: the hair cuticle, the cortex and the medulla. When the Lifting product is applied during the treatment, the hydrogen comes into contact with the air and oxidizes. This creates a chemical process which breaks down the disulphate bonds in each hair, allowing them to move into a new shape. The next step is applying the volumiser, which reforms the disulphate bonds into their new shape, which is long and lifted with maximum volume.HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE / LAST?Around 30 minutes with an expert lash technician. It’s a closed-eye procedure too! So time to relax and take a power nap. You’re then set for up to 6-8 weeks. That’s a lot of days to have your lashes-on-fleek!DOES THE LASH LIFTING PROCEDURE HURT?No, the procedure is totally painless. You will have your eyes closed for the entire treatment and although it may feel a little strange being unable to open your eyes for this time, it offers you a chance to relax during the treatment.WILL IT DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?We ensure proper lash lift procedures are followed. You can be assured that all our products used have been specifically formulated and tested to prevent damage to your lashes.CAN I STILL WEAR MASCARA You can still wear mascara and use make-up remover, though your lashes will look so good you certainly won’t need to.COULD I HAVE A REACTION TO THIS TREATMENT?Very few people have a reaction to the product but that doesn’t mean you won’t be one of them. What one person reacts to, another is fine with. This is why you can opt to have a patch test 24 hours beforehand. A patch test is quick and simple. It consists of us placing 2 drops of the product behind the ear. Wiping it off and waiting to see if any subsequent irritation occurs over the next 24 hours such as redness, itching or inflammation for example. CAN I WEAR MAKE-UP AFTER MY LASH LIFT?Yes, but it is advised that you leave your lashes untouched for at least 24 hours after your treatment. You may find that there is no need for mascara anyway, but if you wish to make your lashes even fuller, a non-waterproof mascara is advised, as the removal of waterproof mascaras can be harsh on the lashes and weaken the lift.HOW DO I CLEAN MY EYES?Gently, by using mild products and always wait 24 hours before doing this. CAN I USE AN EYELASH CURLER?No. There will be no need for an eyelash curler as this treatment gives a much better result than using a curler, but more importantly, using one may weaken and damage your lashes.WHAT AFTERCARE IS INVOLVED?No maintenance other than a regular lick of our nourishing Lash & Brow Conditioning Serum that’s it! YOU’LL SAVE TIME GETTING READY IN THE MORNINGDo you ever wake up and wish you could have ten extra minutes in bed? Well, with Lash Lifting you can! Waking up with perfect lashes every morning will cut down the time it takes you to get ready in the morning, leaving you with more time to work out, eat a nutritious breakfast, or simply hit that snooze button a few more times.IT’S PERFECT FOR HOLIDAYSA Lash Lifting is the perfect treatment for your holidays because it doesn’t require any maintenance. The last thing you want on holiday is a full face of make-up and as you don’t have to wear mascara, you can kiss goodbye to panda-eye disasters in the pool or while sunbathing!Why not take advantage of our Christmas offer and receive a 10% discount off our Elleebana Lash Lift Treatment. valid until 30th December 2017To book, call: 074 91 30446Terms and Conditions apply and this offer is not in conjunction with any other offerYou can find out more about our Lash Lifting service by clicking on the link below:www.facebook.com/beauty.at.the.lodge.ballybofeyStockists of: LVL by Nouveau Beauty & Elleebana Lash Lifting Lorraine xBeauty: Eyelash lifts explained – why they’re a real eye-opener was last modified: December 5th, 2017 by Lorraine QuinnShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:beauty at the lodgelash liftlorraine quinnlast_img read more
