They met in a Dublin pub, now they’ve raised $15 million

We love when amazing things happen at The Summit in Dublin. Some of the magic happens at night when thousands of entrepreneurs and investors cram into the city’s pubs.

In 2011, one of those magical moments happened when two serial entrepreneurs first met each other and shared a pint of Guinness. That first chance meeting sowed the seeds for something incredible.

So today The Summit team would like to wish a huge congrats to the founders of Hired.comAllan GrantMatt Mickiewicz and their incredible team. It seems like only yesterday……

Speaking of yesterday, Matt and Allan just raised a monster Series A, at a similar valuation to Uber and Airbnb back in the day. It’s an incredible team, an incredible product and some fantastic investors.

Well done guys! Keep rocking it.
