Kickstart Your Business: Trendster


It is the turn of Harry McGann to get his business, 'Trendster', kickstarted on the Right Hook. George and Gerard Tannam of Island Bridge Brand Development were on hand as always to give the business a kickstart, as only they can.


The Business Idea
Although still in school, Harry has been an entrepreneur for the past three years, and was prompted to set up Trendster with his business partner Jack Cullen in order to give young people a platform to tell their own stories, comment on news stories, and give a voice to a generation.
About Trendster
