The story of this young Irish woman shows that a good idea can come at any age, and it’s never too early to take advantage of it! Just ask Rhona Togher, who while still being a high school student developed a hearing therapy to relieve a condition known as tinnitus. Thanks to this innovation, Rhona Togher earned a name in the BT Young Scientists & Technology Exhibition in Dublin in 2008 and 2009 as well as the recognition of the Irish Health Research Board by earning the ‘Medical Innovation’ of the year award.
Today, this young woman has grown her idea and it has become a successful startup called ‘Restored Hearing’, where she acts as CEO and continuously looks for ways to improve her products and to reach as many people as possible. Hers is a story of how an entrepreneurial mentality can take root very early in the way of seeing life for young Europeans.
Rhona Togher actively participates in the world of entrepreneurship, both by sharing information on social networks and interacting with other entrepreneurs and going to events like the recent ‘Irish Tatler Women of the Year’.

Andrew J Scott
Blood may not be what flows through Andrew J Scott’s veins, but instead information bits and binary codes since, for this British-born entrepreneur, nothing is more interesting than technological development, Internet and the possibilities it provides our ever changing world. And it’s not an exaggeration, because as a child he showed his passion for information technology that led him to found a fanzine for Atari computer users.
From that moment on and for the next 20 years as an entrepreneur, Scott founded 6 ICT startups among which are: ‘InTraining’, ‘Playtext’, and ‘Rumble Labs’. This young man has also been involved in advising another 100 startups and currently is a founder partner at ‘7percent Ventures’, and co-founder of ‘ICE List’. http://icelist.eu/
Andrew J Scott is a fireproof entrepreneur who lives halfway between the web and mobile, and between London and San Francisco.
