LUKE MACKEY - CO-FOUNDER/CEO, BAMBOO

Luke Mackey is the Co-Founder and CEO of Bamboo, a mobile payments startup that speeds up wait times in cafes and restaurants. Luke won the 2016 Student Summit and has gone on to turn what was an idea into a business.

In January, Bamboo launched in Dublin City, with two more cities and a seed round on the horizon this year. After finishing a degree in marketing last summer, Luke went full-time into Bamboo since then they’ve raised a pre-seed, built a team and launched their initial product.

Now a five-person company and growing, Bamboo has big plans in payments space. Luke will share what he’s learned on his journey so far, and how to tackle starting a tech company in college.
