Can we create sustainable local jobs in local communities post pandemic? Yes, by putting engines of Digital Growth at the heart of our local communities across Ireland.
At DigitalHQ clg we convert empty space in listed buildings in town centres into vibrant hubs to attract digital businesses and support traditional businesses through digital campaigns. We call these facilities Digital Growth Hubs and we believe they can play a major role in the regeneration of our towns across Ireland in the coming years.
Our model enables localities to leverage people’s loyalty to location to create indigenous engines of economic growth in their area that are not dependent on large factories or MNCs but on the existing fabric of towns and cities in both the built and social sense.
Today is the closing date for observations on the Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Development Plan 2022 - 2028. In my guest post in Irish Tech News today I highlight vacant state owned buildings in our home town of Dún Laoghaire which have the potential to create hundreds of jobs if appropriately converted.
