The Mill Enterprise Hub is opening its doors during Drogheda Fleadh Cheoil 2018 to offer hotdesks for those wishing to work remotely, at a discounted daily rate of €10 during the Fleadh week of 12th August to 19th August. This will particularly suit locals who normally commute to Dublin but wish to have extra time to access the full programme of musical and cultural activities during Fleadh Cheoil. It will also be ideal for visitors to Drogheda that need short-term access to a high-tech co-working space including teleconference facilities.
According to Breanndán Casey, Business Development Manager of The Mill “The Fleadh hotdesk offer is a great opportunity to experience our friendly and supportive entrepreneurial community, network with local business owners over a cup of coffee, avoid the normal commute to Dublin, and enjoy our facilities, all within walking distance of the town centre and all it has to offer during Fleadh Cheoil. Drogheda and surrounding region has the highest commuter traffic in Ireland – we hope this experience will convince local entrepreneurs and nascent entrepreneurs that The Mill and Drogheda can offer all the supports needed to start and grow an International business, and help to build a self-sustainable regional economy”
The Mill is one of Ireland’s leading Enterprise Hubs and currently hosts over 30 startups and expanding businesses. The facilities include hotdesks, offices, high-speed internet, meeting and conference rooms, phonebooths, showers, roof-garden, disabled access, and a modern kitchen with free nespresso. The Mill prides itself on working with the local community and is the official Enterprise partner for Drogheda Fleadh Cheoil which expects over 400,000 visitors during the course of the week.
The Mill is proud to be the point of contact between local entrepreneurs and various startup communities, such as Louth Local Enterprise Office, Drogheda Chamber of Commerce, and local educational institutions such as DKIT and DIFE. In June 2018 Drogheda Institute of Further Education (DIFE) and The Mill Enterprise Hub teamed up to support two students who are passionate about developing a business idea. The students won three months free hotdesk at The Mill and additional mentoring support by completing a short application outlining their potential business. One of the winners, Michal Janik, founder of Sylwester Productions, a local photo and video company, has already teamed up with various Millers to film and edit corporate videos and podcasts on site. Michal commented “Winning the hotdesk has been fantastic and has given me the momentum to really work on my business. I love interacting with other Millers, and the enthusiasm and atmosphere at The Mill is inspiring as I work on my first business plan”.
The Mill was one of five Enterprise Hubs to benefit from SIRO’s 1GB internet connection in 2017 and have also partnered with SIRO on a competition to offer a free hotdesk during August.
