The journey began in early 2017 with the mission to connect the established business network in Cork and become a support structure to help each business grow and scale.
We had a few ideas of how to get this vision up and running but took each day as it came, upskilled where we could, called in favours and expanded our network. Within a few months, we started to see businesses thrive and reap the benefits of being surrounded by our community.
As we sit here in 2021, we look back with a sense of pride and achievement at how many businesses and individuals we have helped to expand and succeed. Some have grown so much that they have moved on but remain an active part of our community, while some look forward to their continued journey.
2021 is set to be a big year for us, we have incubators, boot camps, hackathons, plus much more, all underway this year to provide extra support for the ecosystem and network in Cork.
Republic of Work isn’t solely focused on startups, we facilitate businesses and organisations at any stage, providing guidance and mentorship in any way we can.
Our community is at the forefront of everything we do - we don’t just say it, we mean it! We have the most engaged community around.
