Located on campus at the Institute of Art, Design & Technology (IADT) in Dun Laoghaire, the Media Cube offers early stage digital ventures state-of-the-art facilities and a vibrant environment designed to help businesses grow.

Established in 2007 with support from Enterprise Ireland under the National Development Plan, the Media Cube is home to approximately 20 early stage ventures employing in excess of 70 people. Areas of activity include animation, music creation & sharing platforms, online payment services, online retail pricing analytics, e-learning and content creation for the health sector.

As well as accessing support and advice from fellow entrepreneurs, Media Cube tenants benefit from opportunities to collaborate with IADT students and researchers and to use IADT facilities.

We are always keen to meet with digital entrepreneurs and start-up companies who are aiming for international success.
