A New Era for Entrepreneurship

Supporting Startups with Global Ambition
Our mission is to help startups succeed at every point of their journey through coaching and mentoring, with a founder-first approach delivered by international experts.
We believe that Ireland can be globally great at entrepreneurship, reaching the top 5 by 2030 as a leader in building internationally scalable tech startups.

Entrepreneur-Led, Founder First
Our approach is entrepreneur-led and founder-first, led by international experts who have already succeeded and failed at startups.
We offer practical, hands-on mentorship and support from seasoned founders to help globally ambitious entrepreneurs build and grow their business.
“As an NDRC alumni I'm delighted to continue my journey as part of an integrated community with Dogpatch and its regional partners. Their support to help us fund, sell, hire and scale has been a major asset.”
Ann Hunt | CEO & Founder
