Bank of Ireland is contributing to the fintech community that is growing up around Camden Street in Dublin.

The first Bank of Ireland Startlab opened in Galway in 2016 followed by the New York Startlab in May 2017.

The first cohort of fintech start-ups consists of eight companies and, according to entrepreneur in residence Gene Murphy, there is room for four more in the present space.

Located above the Bank of Ireland branch on Camden Street, Startlab provides the companies with space and quality mentoring to boldly go ahead and create the products of the future.
