Tadhg O’Toole, Founder and CEO talks about LIKECHARITY and Flynn O’Driscoll…

LIKECHARITY was founded in 2013 with a simple goal: to help charities raise money in a more cost effective way. Early on, we focused on breaking down the barriers that made giving by text message so cost prohibitive. We partnered with all the major network operators and developed a mobile giving platform that enabled any registered charity to set up a fundraising campaign quickly, easily and without having to commit huge funds to something that might not work.

LIKECHARITY’s Collect platform enabled charities to get comfortable with new technology. Our belief in easy fundraising methods was proved right, much sooner than we thought! Viral social media phenomena like the No Makeup Selfie and the Ice Bucket Challenge generated millions of euro through LIKECHARITY in ludicrously short periods of time.

As a result, Irish charities have now raised over €5,000,000 through our mobile platform. We now serve hundreds of charities in the United States, UK and the Republic of Ireland. We use a suite of fundraising tools to devise and execute connected strategies, blending emotional outreach with deep-rooted, long lasting donor engagement.

I’ve worked with Alan in Flynn O’Driscoll on a number of start-up projects as both founder and investor. As well as providing commercially insightful legal advice, the team helped create and sustain momentum during the funding and deal process.

ClaimVantage have been working with Alan O’Driscoll for the past two years and have build up an excellent working relationship with the partnership. We had previously used one of the more prominent corporate law firms in Dublin but struggled to keep costs in check. We have found Flynn O’Driscoll to be very supportive and are always aware of the costs, to date we have completed three transactions and were very pleased with the results.

One of the transactions was to support an Enterprise Ireland funding round and again Flynn O’Driscoll had the experience and knowledge of the process that ensured the Enterprise Ireland transaction went smoothly.

I would highly recommend Flynn O’Driscoll for your corporate legal services.
