With our Sheffield Startup month now well underway (and going rather swimmingly), it’s time for us to give a cheery wave to the next city in our Startup tour which happens to be Dublin.
What better place for the first of our visits to the Irish republic than the nations fair capital, the jewel of its eastern coast and home to one of the most diverse, cosmopolitan and thriving communities in Europe if not the world!
Home to about 1.8 million people, Dublin has for centuries been a major hub for finance, commerce, education and culture, playing a critical role in the histories of both the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
The city has gained a formidable reputation as a convivial home for global pharmaceutical, information and communications technology companies including Microsoft, eBay, Amazon, Yahoo!, Google, Facebook, PayPal Twitter and Pfizer, all of whom have their European headquarters located within the city.
It is also home to one of the worlds most diverse, innovative and successful startup communities.
Throughout October we will be putting the cities self starter spirit under our microscope as we take an indepth look at;
collaborative working spaces
innovative new businesses
people demonstrating great self starter spirit
Where do you come in to this?
If you have experience of Dublin in any of the capacities mentioned above and would like to share your experiences/ startup journey with the world, then we want to hear from you!
