You probably know that the startup ecosystem in Galway has evolved and grown rapidly over the past two to three years, but it’s only when you put all the pieces of the puzzle together that you realise how much stuff is actually going on. As part of an effort to collate these resources, and under the auspices of TechInnovate, a new technology entrepreneurship fellowship from NUI Galway, we’ve published the first Galway Startup Guide.
From A to Z (well, from B to Y actually), we list all kinds of startup resources including:
- The best recurring and one-off startup-related events,
- Galway’s tech hubs including coworking spaces and startup offices for those looking for a place to launch,
- key organisations helping startups to get started and scale up, and
- networking groups and tech meetups where you can hear from experts, leaders and founders, because it’s good to talk, but even better to talk, listen and learn.
For each resource, we provide a short description, key contacts, their webpage, and Twitter handles where available. We have many small tech tribes, but they’re all part of a big Galway startup community!
TechInnovate is a 10-month stipend-supported Fellowship from NUI Galway that aims to create interdisciplinary teams of technology entrepreneurs (techpreneurs) who are embedded in a particular domain for 6-8 weeks to identify real needs, following which they invent, implement and iterate solutions.
