Dogpatch first Irish member of Google for Entrepreneurs Tech Hub Network
The Google for Entrepreneurs Tech Hub Network has partnered with co-working space Dogpatch Labs to offer start-ups new options in mentorship, investment and growth opportunities, and to help developers and entrepreneurs launch new ideas and turn them into thriving young companies.
Dogpatch Labs members will now also have access to Google Tech Hub coworking spaces in over 20 locations globally, including London, San Francisco and Tel Aviv.
Ronan Harris, head of Google Ireland, said: “As a former start-up ourselves (opening with just five employees in Dublin, rising to 5000 today), a passion for entrepreneurship and innovation is in our DNA. With Dogpatch Labs and our Google for Entrepreneurs programme, we hope Dublin’s world-class start-up community will grow that much faster, building transformative products and companies that will take the world by storm. We can’t wait to see what new ideas come out.”
Patrick Walsh, managing director, Dogpatch Labs, said: “One of the things that really excites me about this partnership is the Google Tech Hub International Passport. This means that if you are member of Dogpatch you now can hotdesk across a range an incredible co-workspaces and communities that are Google backed around the world from San Francisco to Tel Aviv to London and across Asia.”
Google’s Tech Hub Network is the first formal start-up network of its kind, and at a little over a year old, there are now over 20 Hubs and four Campuses around the world.
