Hello, I’m Declan Droney and I help Entrepreneurs START, SCALE and FIX their businesses

Having started, grown, and sold two businesses, I have experienced the highest highs and the lowest lows of entrepreneurship. It is from these experiences I draw on most. Yes, the theory is important but you need to have walked the walk to really know.

What I do



I provide best in class, entrepreneurship and business startup training, through a number of Agencies and Third level intuitions including Local Enterprise offices, Enterprise Ireland, Bord Bia, Athlone IT and Galway Mayo Institute of Technology



I provide mentoring services directly to my own clients and through government Agencies
such as Enterprise Ireland, Local Enterprise Offices (Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Offaly, Westmeath) Bord Bia, BIM, Udaras Na Gaeltachta.

I am Ireland first member to the UK’s Business Mentors Association.



I work directly with selected clients to start and scale their businesses.
I also work with entrepreneurs to fix their businesses. All businesses run into difficulties from time to time. I work with clients to chart a course, through strategic change, back to profitability.

A passion for Entrepreneurs

The people with the drive to start their business are the most positive, most ambitious people.

To me, they are the pioneers, the achievers, the do’er’s, the employers and the backbone of our future economy.
Since 2010 I have worked with over 400 startups and early-stage entrepreneurs.

Let's work together

If you are an ambitious Enterpreneur starting or scaling your business I would love to work with you.

Mastermind Group's

This is where I meet with a group of 7 like-minded ambitious entrepreneurs.

Having set clear goals, We meet as a group one morning every month to review progress, solve problems and refocus.

Facebook Group

I created this closed Facebook group exclusively for focused, ambitious entrepreneurs who have gone through the startUP stage and now want to scale their businesses or want their businesses to work for them.

The objective of the group is to give and receive support and encouragement.

I met Declan Droney during the Best Young Entrepreneur competition when I didn’t knew much about how to tell my story in a way that grows my business. He showed me how to get different income streams for my business and gave me the confidence on going forward. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough as a business mentor
