Bank of Ireland has launched a unique incubator program for tech startups in Galway "" StartLab powered by Bank of Ireland "" designed to support the tech startup community in Galway City and the surrounding region.

StartLab powered by Bank of Ireland is a unique space which provides emerging tech startup companies with an incubator program lasting for six months that offers successful candidates access to a dedicated workspace, education program and access to a wide range of supports designed to help scale their companies.

From its base at 19 Eyre Square, StartLab will offer entrepreneurs a six month intensive programme including access to Seed Fund Venture Capital investors, mentors, support from the Bank of Ireland Innovation Team (including David Tighe, Head of Innovation, Gene Murphy, Entrepreneur in Residence, and Tracy Keogh, Galway Startup Community Manager) and access to Bank of Ireland product teams, tech sector specialists and technology. The participants in each six month programme will be selected from early stage tech startups through a competitive process in a range of sectors including Fintech, Agritech, ICT and other fast paced industry segments.

Bank of Ireland StartLab Galway complements the Bank of Ireland Workbenches, up and running at Mainguard Street (Galway) and Grand Canal Square (Dublin). Since opening, the Workbenches "" which offer hot desking, meeting and event space to startup companies and entrepreneurs "" have welcomed more than 10,000 visitors, hosted more than 200 events, and supported more than 100 startup enterprises.

The application process for a place at StartLab will be launched in the coming weeks at @boistartups on Twitter.
