Business, Technology | Wed 14 Oct | Author – Business & Finance

The four companies join close to 90 companies already operating at the technology cluster and brings the total number of companies to join this year to 17.

A newly refurbished office space also recently opened at space, bringing the number of buildings at The Digital Hub to nine.

The latest companies to move to The Digital Hub are Alien Technology Transfer, MinFarm, Odin Consultants and SWOT Digital.

Alessandro Rufo, CEO and founder of independent public funding advisory Alien Technology Transfer, said: “We are growing our operation in Dublin to better address the Irish market but also with the objective of bringing our US clients to Dublin. This move represents an excellent environment and a perfect gateway to Europe for young US start-ups in terms of economy, taxation, language and culture. Our team in Dublin is comprised of four people currently; we plan to recruit two more crew members in The Digital Hub in November and 10 people during the first quarter of 2016.”

Henry Lynam, engineering manager at Minfarm, a global marketplace for connecting buyers and sellers of locally produced food, commented: “Our challenge was to find a shared office space that met a number of goals: comfortable to work in, fast broadband for Skype to connect to our HQ in Stockholm, and a location that allowed us meet similar start-up companies. The Digital Hub met and exceeded all these requirements in a modern office space with lots of natural light and a very friendly team. We believe The Digital Hub experience will help us grow in a positive environment and achieve our goals over the coming months.”

Commenting on the new companies, Gerry Macken, CEO, The Digital Hub, noted: “A total of 17 scaling companies have joined us so far this year from many different tech backgrounds, both home-grown and international. This growth, coupled with the opening of our ninth campus building – The Grainstore – means 2015 has been a busy and productive year so far, and we hope to continue growing as we head into Q4 and 2016.”
