Start-ups, SMEs and the country’s biggest businesses and tech multinationals will go head-to-head in a unique citywide treasure hunt on Friday, 6 July in aid of Temple Street Children’s University Hospital.
Techies4TempleStreet, alongside its leadership partner, AIB, challenges Ireland’s business and tech communities to take part in a fun and challenging team-building and networking event.
In response to its continued growth, this year’s city-wide treasure hunt will commence in the Aviva Stadium, and will see participants trek across Dublin city centre seeking buried treasure, completing a variety of different challenges and puzzles along the way.
Since the first treasure hunt in 2015, Techies4TempleStreet has raised over €600,000 for Temple Street, including €225,000 in 2017. These funds have been put to work in the hospital to help sick children and their families, providing life-saving equipment, as well as helping to fund the construction of the new Renal & Neurology Outpatients Unit. On this year’s treasure hunt teams will use digital platforms and they are challenged with questions and clues where strategy and team work will decide the winners
Commenting, Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive of the Temple Street Foundation said, “Now in its fourth year, Techies4TempleStreet has already made a huge difference to Temple Street Children’s University Hospital and its patients.
“Over 130 teams participated in 2017, from the worlds of tech, finance, law, media and recruitment, raising €225,000. This year will see us move to the Aviva Stadium for the first time, and we’re hoping to host over 150 teams from an even more diverse range of companies, big and small.
“The event was originally envisaged as a very unique and different networking event but increasingly, many participants tell us that it has real value as a team-building and client relations day out.
“Despite the name, you don’t actually need to be a techie to participate. All that’s required is a can-do attitude, a sense of humour and an appetite for teamwork.
