Storyful founder Mark Little has been approached by his former employer RTE to run an online division, but it is unlikely he will take up the offer.
The news comes as accounts filed show Storyful tripled its losses in 2014, losing €2.2 million last year compared with €641,000 in 2013.
Little, who left Storyful in June, would not confirm that RTE had asked him to return. However, he said he currently has no plans to work there.
