What's the collective noun for a cluster of small businesses?

A town!

We are a social enterprise that converts vacant historic buildings in town centres into digital growth hubs. These hubs work with the local community to test and trial digital tools to help rural localities attract remote knowledge workers, home buyers, shoppers and visitors to their area. As small businesses are the heart of the economic vitality of  places we help them get the most from digital through our Digital Growth Mindset. 

We enable PEOPLE to get behind their PLACE for future PROSPERITY through digitalisation

The work of our digital growth living lab in Dun Laoghaire Town over the past 5 years formed the basis of our town's win at the .IE Digital Towns awards in 2021.  Based on feedback from enterprise support agencies our model is unique in Ireland, and in Europe too, based on the endorsements of our work that we have received from the European DIGITAL SME Alliance and Placemaking Europe
