Galway City Innovation District (GCID)
An overview of this proposed innovation cluster in Galway's inner city.
The Innovation District is to be nestled between Galway's transportation gateways: adjacent to the train (Ceannt) and coach stations, and abutting historic Galway Harbour.
We have started with the PorterShed, a downtown innovation hub that houses high-potential startups, entrepreneurs, a coworking space, and an open events area for workshops/talks.
We opened the PorterShed in May 2016, with the aim of showing how well this can work and to make the case for expansion into neighbouring buildings and spaces.
The Innovation District is being led by a group of locally-based entrepreneurs and executives.
