DigitalHQ had an excellent meeting with Minister Damien English T.D. hosted by our honorary patron Dr. Jennifer Carroll MacNeill TD to explore our proposal for a DigitalHQ clg Enterprise Campus in an unoccupied building in our town as a driver for future economic growth.
"The work DigitalHQ clg are doing in #DunLaoghaire is absolutely aligned with what we want to do as a Government and a Department, I'm very supportive of what you're doing, it is a model that could be replicated around the country". You have assembled a really good team for this project."
Very true Minister, it was a real team effort today! Thanks to Dr. Jennifer Carroll MacNeill TD for organising the meeting, our Board Chad Gilmer (Chair), Lisa Cunningham, Wesley Hudson and Breffni Jackson, our advisory panel member Catherine Butler Weir, the steering group for the project Fiona Descoteaux and Oonagh McCutcheon and chair of #DunLaoghaire TownTeam Martin O'Byrne.
"You're ahead of the game."
We will be working hard to build on the success of our first enterprise centre, open since 2017 & supported by space donated by Bank of Ireland and supported by Local Enterprise Office DLR, to scale up the supports we can offer the small business community in our town and region.
