Opportunity for 'up and coming talent' to partner with some of the best in the Industry
Host in Ireland’s journey began with five data hosting companies who shared a vision of ‘co-opetition’. They set aside competitive differences and came together to share the story of why Ireland makes good business sense for international companies hosting their digital assets in Europe.
Last year, we made the decision to offer two up and coming companies the opportunity to come on board as full Host in Ireland partners on a one year pro-bono basis.
In 2021, we were joined by Edge Automation and GCS Consulting, both of whom benefitted from the opportunity to share in the knowledge, experience and networking opportunities that Host in Ireland is renowned for.
As we look to once again expand our membership in 2022, we are pleased to announce that we will once again be offering two new pro-bono partnerships.
These pro-bono partnerships will be granted to Irish owned and based start-ups/scale-ups with products and services targeting the data centre sector. The selected companies will be granted full partner status including participation in our 2022 Councils.
Both companies will benefit from a series of mentorships and workshops, as well as the opportunity to network and provide input into the future direction of data hosting in Ireland.
Host in Ireland will accept applications from companies nominated by our partners or via direct applications. A team of mentors will select a shortlist of candidates who will then be interviewed by the selection committee. The winners of the pro-bono partnerships will be announced in January 2022.
We know that 2021 continued to present many business challenges, but we have also seen opportunities created as data centres continue to be recognised as a part of our critical infrastructure.
Our Host in Ireland partners reflect the growing size and diversity of the Irish data centre cluster with years of collective experience amongst our partners. An ideal opportunity for a new start-up to learn from, and network with, some of the best in the industry.
We look forward to welcoming our new partners in 2022.
