The Digital Hub has attracted a further five new tech companies into the digital cluster.

Among these companies are a number of international businesses with links to countries such as Finland, New Zealand, UK and the US.

The tech cluster has welcomed 15 new technology companies in total this year, many of which cite the flexible working space, office facilities and location provided by The Digital Hub as among the key reasons for its selection.

Commenting on the new companies to join The Digital Hub, Gerry Macken, CEO, Digital Hub Development Agency, said: ‘’After another successful quarter we are delighted to welcome five more companies to join the digital cluster here at The Digital Hub. The new companies have recognised Ireland as a key location within the EU, and have therefore set up their European base in Dublin. This trend is a reflection of our ongoing relationship with IDA Ireland. Another key factor for companies moving to Dublin is the hunt for flexible office space, which we provide here, allowing companies to operate as they need.’’

The new companies announcing their new move to The Digital Hub include:

AdScribe, a company started in London in 2014 that helps TV platforms to recognise new revenue and increased customer satisfaction through analytics and advertising.

Danal Mobile Services, the premier provider of mobile identity and authentication solutions driven by unique real time connections to mobile operator networks and data.

Ink and Light, a company producing animated and live-action television series for family audiences.

Optimal Workshop, a company that provides a suite of usability tools to help improve website navigation, define information architecture, understand first click behaviour and capture qualitative research.

PicMonkey, a photo editing and graphic design website dedicated to fulfilling the world’s creative yearnings. offers high-powered creative tools that users of every experience level can enjoy right in their web browser-no learning curve or downloading required.

The Digital Hub is also the EMEA headquarters of major global companies like eMaint, Eventbrite and Lonely Planet, and is home to industry organisations such as the Irish Internet Association, NDRC and Silicon Republic.
