Our story

The GEC opened its doors in 2000 and has since become Ireland’s #1 entrepreneurial superhub. We provide office space, advice, national and international reach and an awesome community for startups and scaling companies to learn and grow – empowering you to take on local or global markets.

In 2019 the GEC embarked on a €10m expansion project supported by our stakeholders to deliver a world-class centre now comprising of 95,000 sq. ft in the heart of Dublin City Centre.

A pillar of Ireland’s Economic Infrastructure, the GEC was Globally Recognised as the #1 University Associated Business Incubator In The World. Deeply Integrated With Government, Education, Community & Industry Sectors, we have been driving Innovation & Economic Wealth Creation since 2000.
