We need to improve our innovation game.

6 years ago, Trinity College Dublin Discussions began on an ambitious vision for an Innovation District in Dublin. The suggestion was clear.

It had failed to build an internationally credible startup ecosystem and needed to find a way to attract, retain and capitalize on the talent that would propel the economy into the future.
