I’m Ronan, an Irish engineer and entrepreneur.
I studied at UCD and MIT, where I mostly focused on desalination.
I co-founded and sold Sandymount Technologies, an MIT spin-out. Sandymount brought to market a new membrane technology capable of producing high quality concentrated beverages, including beer. It was acquired by Alfa Laval in 2020.
I also co-founded and ran a hand-sanitiser business during COVID, making $750,000 in profits that were directed to community charities in the US.
I now live in Dublin and am focused on:
Running my investing business (startups + public stocks).
Building payments and accounting software on crypto payment rails at Trelis.com
Writing here at The Blip - mostly about my investing and building.
