Dublin Startup Commissioner Resigns

Blog Reveals the Office of the Dublin Commissioner for Startups to Undergo Review and Development Plan for its Future


Niamh Bushell at the launch of tcube co-working space for startups, to step down as Dublin Commissioner for StartupsIn a blog post released this morning, the Office of the Dublin Commissioner for Startups, Niamh Bushnell, has announced that she is to step down as Commissioner at the end of March 2017. 


The Office of the Dublin Commissioner for Startups began in October 2014 as a pilot project funded by two key funders, the Ryan Academy at Dublin City University and Dublin City Council. The Office also received a significant amount of financial support from a host of other organizations such as Ding, Cartrawler, CurrencyFair and Elkstone, not to mention Dublin's wonderful tech community itself.



According to the Commissioner, it was agreed at a recent Board meeting that the Office had succeeded in doing something that was important and new in Ireland - namely to enhance the character and international reputation of Dublin as a tech and innovation city.

She said that the Office will be continuing as normal to the end of March 2017, when Dublin City Council,  in consultation with the relevant stakeholders, will start work on a review and development plan for the Office's future.

The Commissioner finishes by saying that plans for initiatives such as Dublin Globe, The Brekkie, Tech Concierge, Mentoring for Scale and TechIreland will be announced early in 2017.
