Louise Grubb, a Waterford native and successful entrepreneur, has significantly contributed to the region’s med-tech industry through her innovative company, TriviumVet.

After a robust education in nutrition and marketing, and significant experience with a multinational, she returned to Waterford, drawn by its quality of life and professional opportunities. Grubb’s decision to base her operations in Waterford has allowed her to leverage local expertise and resources, illustrating the area’s potential as an attractive hub for both living and business. Her ventures, including a popular podcast highlight the advantages of Waterford—a lower cost of living, excellent transport links, and a supportive business environment.

“Over the past 20 years Waterford has successfully attracted very many pharmaceutical companies to the area, giving it critical mass. That makes it easier to attract talent to a start-up, which is traditionally hard to do. It’s a lot easier to do now than it was when I first started out, because people know now that if a job doesn’t work-out, there are loads of other opportunities within a 30-mile radius,” Louise explains.

This makes the city an ideal place for professionals seeking a balanced lifestyle while contributing to cutting-edge scientific work. Waterford’s appeal is broad, offering significant opportunities for investment and new ventures in the thriving sectors of technology and pharmaceuticals.
