Digital Dún Laoghaire is an initiative of the Dún Laoghaire Business Improvement District. It is supported by key stakeholders in the town and was launched by Minister of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor on the 30th September 2016.
Its goal is to build a strong cluster of digital companies in Dún Laoghaire for the dual purposes of innovation and urban regeneration. It is a local project which has national significance because this blueprint will be shared with towns across the country as it progresses.
Dún Laoghaire is a great place to do business. It is home to more than 60 companies in the Digital Space, including a number of multinational players and fast growing newcomers. Only a 10 minute DART journey away from Grand Canal Dock and its global giants, Dún Laoghaire has a lot to offer.
To highlight the benefits of setting up a business in Dún Laoghaire and the benefits of locating there, a showcase event is being held on Friday the 2 December in the Studio at the DLR Lexicon Library in Dún Laoghaire.
The event will feature:
A scaling panel discussion facilitated by Digital Dún Laoghaire Connector Eoin Costello. The panel will discuss the secrets to scaling from Dún Laoghaire with representatives from successful local digital/tech companies including Digital Marketing Institute, Rockall Technologies, Big Red Cloud and AIB.
A talent panel discussion facilitated by Sven Spollen-Behrens on the topic of attracting and retaining the right talent for the growth of your digital business in Dún Laoghaire with representatives from CPL, Sigmar, Bua Bua and new Dún Laoghaire residents BOI Payment Acceptance.
There will be dozens of digital/tech companies demonstrating their products and services on the day.
