If you spot large numbers of skinny-jean wearing, iPad-tapping, confused-looking tech executives roaming the streets of Dublin in the coming months, it isn’t because somebody mischievously turned off the internet. Our hospital has teamed up with a number of high-profile tech companies in the city to launch Techies4TempleStreet, a charity treasure hunt across the city in aid of the hospital.
Teams of executives from technology companies, including LinkedIn and Airbnb, as well as teams from their advisory firms, such as Deloitte and William Fry, have already signed up. Team participants will be challenged by technology-oriented questions and clues in an intellectually exciting treasure trail. That should get hearts racing among the competitive ‘techies’!
A target of more than 1,000 executives has been set for the inaugural treasure hunt on 2 October, which starts from the RDS. Plenty of big firms have signed up already, but lots more are welcome. Go to techies4templestreet.ie for more details.
