TU Dublin – Tallaght Campus
The Synergy Centre is a state of the art business incubator based on the Tallaght Campus of TU Dublin and created by Enterprise Ireland and IT Tallaght (now TU Dublin).
Synergy Centre offers a supportive and vibrant environment for startups and entrepreneurs. It caters for a range of business types and offers flexible facilities that can adapt to your business needs. The centre is a commercially-oriented interface linking client ventures with research facilities inside ITT, external commercial enterprises and support agencies such as Enterprise Ireland and Local Enterprise offices.
Events, mentoring and networking opportunities all part of the Synergy Centre experience. There are regular Juice Breakfasts, with expert speakers on current business topics and the opportunity to meet locally- and regionally-based businesses and entrepreneurs. There are also quarterly events such as Sales Masterclass, Women in Business and sponsored speakers.

Synergy Global, which represents an additional 1,100m² of modern incubation facility, was acquired by ITT Dublin in 2011, and is now home to high-growth innovative technology companies, many of whom are graduates of the Synergy Centre.
