Digital Dun Laoghaire – an initiative of Dun Laoghaire Business Improvement District – is calling on local digital entrepreneurs to attend its March meet-up, which will provide information on how good design is essential to growing a successful digital business.
Project Manager Eoin Costello explained that the focus in March will be on design and its critical role in growing local digital businesses and a strong digital cluster for Dun Laoghaire.
“Dun Laoghaire has a concentration of design and creative businesses which can support its goal of becoming the region’s hub for digital innovation and growth. Good design (user experience, brand, customer journey etc.) is good for business in ways that are measurable, profitable, and helpful for the customer,” he said.
Entitled Why ‘good’ design is essential to growing your digital business: Everything you need to know, the breakfast meeting aims to support the development of Dun Laoghaire as a digital hub. Guest speakers include:
– John Moore, CEO, Clickworks
– Brian Cleary, MD, BOI Payment Acceptance
– David Smith, Head of Faculty Film, Art & Creative, IADT.
The meeting will take place on Wednesday March 8th in Starbuck’s on Marine Road (next to Nando’s) with all local digital entrepreneurs and business leaders invited.
The event is being held as part of the official Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Local Enterprise Week 2017 Programme of Events. It will begin with networking at 7.30am, followed by a presentation and discussion from 7.45-8.45am. It is the fourth in a series of six monthly Digital Dun Laoghaire breakfast meetings.
Key insights from the February meeting on scaling digital and tech businesses are available here.
Digital Dun Laoghaire was officially launched by Minister Mitchell O’Connor and the Chairman of Dun Laoghaire Business Improvement District, Anthony Quigley, last September and aims to support the growth of digital companies in creating 450 new jobs over the next two years by building strong collaboration.
Currently, over 60 digital/tech companies are located in Dún Laoghaire, ranging from startups (like Zoom Courier Software, A To Where, or NewsLinn) to international companies (like Digital Marketing Institute, Rockall Technologies and Bank of Ireland Payment Acceptance).
