Dublin's Digital Hub is growing
SIX growing digital companies have joined the enterprise cluster at Dublin's Digital Hub.
The new companies employ 17 people and plan to create 28 additional high-skilled jobs before the end of the year.
"There are now almost 900 people working on the Digital Hub's campus in a variety of highly-skilled roles across a wide range of digital media and technology companies," said Ruth Flynn, the hub's client services manager.
"The decision by these companies to locate here is a testament to the success and ongoing development of the Digital Hub project, which continues to evolve and go from strength to strength."
The three Irish companies are Creative Nation, a multi-channel network (MCN) on YouTube; Fractus learning, which works with educators internationally to share ideas and promote cutting-edge technology skills; and Athena Media, an award-winning transmedia production company.
Danish firm Site Improve, which provides web governance solutions, French global micropayment solution firm Megatransfert Technologies and Nice Corporate Solution, the Irish arm of an Italian company that aims to help organisations manage digital brands worldwide, are also the 75 firms now operating from the hub.
"The character of the area, the diverse mix of companies and amazing things that small and growing teams were creating was pretty mind-blowing and inspiring for me," added Nick Grantham, of Fractus, who has worked in the hub previously.
