About Drogheda Digital Innovation Hub (DDIH)

The Mill is partnering with Louth Co. Council on the delivery of the Drogheda Digital Innovation Hub, (DDIH). The program will involve the delivery of a pre-accelerator program, a town centre hub and a dedicated program manager to promote enterprise development in the greater Drogheda area.

What is a Pre-Accelerator?

A pre-accelerator is a program focused on early stage startups, taking them from concept to MVP (minimum viable product).

A big part of the program is mentorship. Experienced mentors will come in and give the team guidance with product and customer validation, marketing, product development, pitch and anything else needed to build the product to a place in which it can attract investment and attention.
