16th of December 2010 by admin

With the news that the Innovation Fund Ireland, the Government initiative managed by the National Pension Reserve Fund (NPRF) and Enterprise Ireland to attract leading venture capital fund managers to Ireland, have invested $50m in Polaris Ventures.

Polaris Ventures are probably best known as an investor in Automattic (who are behind WordPress, and also the company which acquired Polldaddy).

Polaris Ventures are also behind the Dogpatch Labs initiative. Its goal is connect entrepreneurs and help founders conceive and launch startups. Check out this video from Robert Scoble

Another startup incubator for Ireland – jeepers really is feast or famine! Great though … starting to become a hub here … couple more high quality events and IE/Dublin will be European Tech Hub.

Sounds like a very interesting concept and something that would be very welcome in Dublin. A step in the right direction by Enterprise Ireland in helping to create Ireland new knowledge economy. Will we see something similar to the San Fran operation in Dublin any time soon?
