Eoin Cooney, the CEO of ARROE, loves solving problems, and the more complicated – the more he enjoys coming up with creative solutions for it.

He founded SLAINT in 2015, a luxury smart luggage brand that incorporates fashion and hardware. A year later, he founded ARROE, a hardware battery and charging hub that can charge any laptop or model. Both companies address the issue of energy and how it affects mobility.

For the last 17 years, he’s worked in consumer goods and technology, with global brands across project and product management, product and business development plus retail, licensing, and franchising. He worked with Apple in 2009 to develop a wide range of consumer electronics accessories, before building it into a global category and selling the license to Belkin.

Eoin studied law, design, and business and is an active ex-student at UAL.

In his spare time, he advises startups.
