Waterford entrepreneur Jordan Casey, who is a Bachelor of Business (Hons) student at WIT, has announced the launch of SCNE (Social City Nightlife and Entertainment) Waterford and Ireland’s first fully dedicated Entertainment and Nightlife app

Sucessful startups

A Waterford local and self-taught programmer and since the age of 9, Jordan has established several successful technology startups since 2012 such as ‘Casey Games’ and the award-winning ‘TeachWare’ and KidsCode.

“I’m extremely excited to finally reveal my latest app, SCNE. SCNE’s objective is to become Waterford’s entertainment companion by providing a relevant, easy and free guide to tourists, students and locals whilst presenting a unique opportunity for businesses to market their properties,” he says.

“Over the past 7 years, I’ve been extremely lucky to have established a number of different technology start-ups from games to education. A diverse range, yes but they all hold one common denominator: they are passions of mine. This product combines two of my passions: Fun and Waterford. Everywhere I travel to, I’m always excited to share with the people I speak to the incredible story behind my city. I’m from here, I work here, I study in WIT and now I have the chance to create a product dedicated to the place I call home.”

His overall aim for SCNE is to eventually expand to other parts of the country, whilst remaining based here in Waterford.
