Five New Companies Join The Digital Hub Team

The Digital Hub is located at the old ‘Grainstore’ of what was Roe’s Distillery, which is currently under refurbishment and is planned to open later this year. Based in the Liberties area, the 19th century building will add a further 10,650 square feet of office space for the use of Ireland’s biggest group of digital media, technology and Internet businesses.

Recently, five new technology companies joined the Digital Hub team and will provide a further 41 jobs. The first quarter of the year saw eight new companies joining the Digital Hub, employing 17 new software techies and it is, of course, positive news to see that there is further expansion in this half of the year.

Presently, there are almost 90 businesses operating from the Digital Hub, who employ nearly 650 people at present. The companies that are mostly indigenous enterprises and close to 200 companies have come and gone since The Digital Hub first opened its doors to technological and digitally focused businesses in its city centre location – creating thousands of skilled jobs for those in the field of software technology.

“After another successful quarter we are pleased to count five more companies joining close to 90 within The Digital Hub. These new companies comprise both international and indigenous Irish businesses. Companies are continually citing The Digital Hub’s track record and brand recognition as their reasons for coming to the cluster, which is a very positive result for us as we prepare to expand and grow further with the opening of the Grain store building later this year. We are confident that the second half of 2015 will continue to see success and further growth of the new and existing Hub companies, “Chief Executive Officer, Gerry Macken, at The Digital Hub, said in a recent press release.

The five new companies joining the Digital Hub are SlackDigital Strategy ConsultantsMyFamilyKey.comTenego Partnering and Square1. The COO of one of the new companies, Square1, Diego Solorzano, said: “The two key things for us in choosing The Digital Hub were its central location and brand recognition. Being located in the city centre means we’re close to a number of our existing clients, and identifying ourselves as a “Digital Hub company” when talking to new clients is also a big plus. Even when the clients aren’t too familiar with the tech industry, they’ve typically heard of The Digital Hub and some of the more notable alumni, so it’s helpful in opening doors that way.”
