In this article, Stephen Larkin talks about how Antikytera started in late 2017 at a bar in Italy when Kris Karà and Paula Guimarães met to discuss business. The two decided to relocate to Ireland to start the business and it proved to be a good decision.
Our main asset is the creativity within our product. We are solving a problem in a different way to everyone else and it’s also simplifying the user’s work. We built this by putting ourselves in the shoes of the potential user and that has been the key to our success.
When you look at the start-up scene here in Ireland, the numbers for success stories are not always great. It’s a tough environment and more often than not companies will fail, but to be able to use Antikytera as an example to aspiring entrepreneurs is great for us. These two came to Ireland with just an idea, and now they are working with clients all over the world.
