The Business Saturday 17 February 2018
Richard's first guest this morning is a serial entrepreneur and investor who has made a lot of money by having a keen eye for the next big thing.
Norman Crowley grew up on a farm in West Cork, but his attention switched to technology at an early age, and formed the basis for his first forays into the world of business in his early 20's. He say the early potential of the internet back in the days of dial up, but after selling his first business to what was then Eircom, he switched his attention to the gambling industry.
But these days, the issue of climate change is at the heart of Norman’s enterprises. He started the energy efficiency business Crowley Carbon in 2009. Later this month, he will open the Cool Experience in County Wicklow – a fun and educational attraction to get people young and old engaged in the issue of global warming – and there are plans to open in Sydney and Dubai too
