Startups

Since 1991, DIT Hothouse has served the needs of Ireland’s emerging entrepreneurs, establishing itself as a leading startup incubator. Notable alumni include Movidius, Mick’s Garage, Smarter Surfaces, Boards.ie, Artomatix and Locatible.

Based in the Greenway Hub in DIT Grangegorman, a short walk from Dublin’s Smithfield area, DIT Hothouse's newly opened, €21 million startup incubator offers training space, hotdesks, own-door offices and state-of-the-art labs. The wider Grangegorman site will be DIT’s new central campus and, following a 10 year re-development, will fully open in 2021. In total, it will host 30,000 students, cost €1 billion and span 75 acres of Dublin city centre.
