Dublin is a very startup-friendly city – perhaps one of the most friendly around and we’re not just talking about the people and the parties. Whether you’re thinking about launching a company, have just started out, work for a startup or otherwise, Dublin’s tech scene is open and inviting.

  1. Location, location, location

Being small makes Dublin an ideal location to live and work at all ages.
