Many companies are viewing Ireland as a starting point for accessing Europe. Just recently five new tech companies representing Belgium, Finland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States have joined the Digital Hub tech cluster in Dublin’s Liberties district. This interesting news came from the Silicon Republic in their article, “5 overseas start-ups select Dublin’s Digital Hub for their new EU base.”

So what is the attraction? As the saying goes, location, location, location. A key factor for companies moving to Dublin is the hunt for flexible office space and resources. Start-ups have specific challenges, i.e. financing, infrastructure, reasonably priced IT solutions, etc. Digital Hub offers non-traditional lease arrangements that are flexible to allow for growth and creative financing.

Set up by the Irish government in 2003, The Digital Hub fosters innovation, technological development and creativity in a supportive, entrepreneurial environment.
