Goodbye Belfast! it was good while it lasted

Silicon Ireland set up its Startup Academy Ireland in Belfast in May 2011. We helped  launch to tech startups and this was helped by our mentors and advisers. We also covered events as they happened in NI, like TedxBelfast and DWS Tech Meetup in Belfast.

But with with a heavy heart we have decided to leave our base in Belfast and return to covering Tech items from Dublin, our team will remain Charlie, Nas and Pete covering the Dublin Tech scene

In the end the tech scene in NI is small but developing. However engagement by everyday people is not there yet and this has left us with this very difficult decision.

So we pack our bags and return to where we started. Thank you for all those who did engage and we hope to cover events  in the future.
