Built in Dublin is a series of short video stories, created in collaboration with RTÉ. It spotlights MediaTech founders, and their startups, who are changing the industry and the use of both old media and new media from right here in Dublin.

In the second episode of the series, we introduce the founder of NewsWhip – Paul Quigley.

Quigley co-founded NewsWhip back in 2011 when he found it hard to discover the most interesting news stories online. In the video, he talks about building a product in the early days of a startup, why it is essential to do it in-house, and the important question he asks when considering whether to build a new feature or not (hint: What would Des do?). Thanks to the rich local and international talent available in Dublin, NewsWhip has found the right people to build that product right here in the city.
