Enterprise Ireland Best Connected Highlights Importance of Propeller Accelerator

From Enterprise Ireland’s Best Connected email newsletter:

In what is seen to be one of the most important developments in Dublin’s status as a major game player in the area of web and technology start-ups, the DCU Ryan Academy Propeller Accelerator (a mentor-led seed accelerator that funds very early stage tech companies in areas such as software, hardware, cleantech and internet) has joined TechStars Network (a recently launched White House-sponsored alliance of independently owned and operated start-up accelerator programs from dozens of cities across the US and around the world).

“TechStars affiliation is a major feather in the cap for the Propeller programme,” said Lorcan O’Sullivan, Manager Overseas Entrepreneurship, Enterprise Ireland.  ”It is also a further endorsement of Dublin as a major player in the web start up space. It follows a recent announcement that US VC Polaris, has selected Dublin as a location for a Dogpatch Labs.”
