Host an Event

Hosting over 100 events a year, Dogpatch Labs provides a platform for Ireland’s tech ecosystem to learn, network and collaborate

Home to the Irish Tech Community

We host more events than any other startup space in Ireland, supporting the tech community as well as welcoming some of the world’s biggest brands.

A Space for Collaboration

We are proud to support hundreds of micro-communities across Ireland by providing them with a platform for engagement and collaboration. Events play a central role in our mission to accelerate the development of Ireland’s tech ecosystem.

A Platform for Growth

Crucial to the growth of Ireland’s tech ecosystem is the meeting of minds through networking and knowledge sharing. Led by volunteers, who are key influencers in the community, these tech communities provide an important role in sharing skills and best practices and are the catalyst for a growing tech hub in Ireland.

First Fridaysfor Startups

First Fridays for Startups is our flagship event that takes place every month, platform where members of the startup ecosystem can come together on a regular basis to learn, connect and grow. The full-stack day includes Mentoring, Lightning Talks & a Keynote from a host of industry experts.
