Cork Hubs Involved In €17m Program To Deliver Funding And Support To Entrepreneurs In The Region
Republic of Work on the South Mall and the Ludgate Hub in Skibbereen have been awarded a five year contract to manage the National Digital Research Centre.
The partnership aims to provide access to mentorship and investors and will involve collaboration with a similar accelerator program ‘Ignite’ in the UK.
Cork businessman and director of Republic of Work Dan Kiely says the programme aims to propel Irish businesses onto the global stage:
““This network will bridge and empower entrepreneurs across regions in ways that have not been possible before. Strong networks have always played a major role in the success of businesses that I’ve been involved with, and our vision here is to increase and cement Ireland’s presence on the global stage of entrepreneurship, continuing our heritage of consistently punching above our weight.”
