The Digital Hub takes on Tech Concierge, the Brekkie and Dublin Globe.

Dublin City Council has transferred three initiatives - successfully trialled at the Office of the Dublin Commissioner for Startups - to The Digital Hub.

From 1st April, The Digital Hub will oversee the continued operation of the Tech Concierge service, the monthly Brekkie event and the publication of the Dublin Globe. These services will continue to operate out of their offices on Custom House Quay.


Dublin City Council is funding these services until December 2017 and together with The Digital Hub is committed to undertaking a further evaluation before the end of the year to decide the future of these services.

Fiach Mac Conghail, CEO of The Digital Hub said: “This is an exciting opportunity for The Digital Hub to build on the successful legacy of Niamh Bushnell’s work as Startup Commissioner. The Digital Hub is perfectly placed to continue these duties and to fully engage with the digital and technology community in Dublin.”

About the Office of the Dublin Commissioner for Startups

The Office of the Dublin Commissioner for Startups began in October 2014 as a pilot project, funded by DCU Ryan Academy, Dublin City Council and Enterprise Ireland, with Niamh Bushnell as the first Dublin Startup Commissioner. One of the original objectives of the Office was to provide a focal point and support network for startups and the broader tech community and to promote the profile of Dublin internationally as a tech and innovation hub.
