Startupbootcamp is expanding in all directions, the camp announced expanding to Madrid back in January and plans on adding London and Berlin to its list by 2012. This week the bootcamp announced it will add Dublin to its network, making it the third city in the list. The concept has initiated from Denmark and is also listed as a global affiliate for the Techstars program.
It’s not just cities being added to the list, entrepreneurs, mentors as well as investors also grow to over 150 and the number will enable the creation of 30 startups a year by sharing their expertise and knowledge. Other than that it will make some reasonable noise given it will be partnering with big names that include multinationals like IBM and Citi along with Enterprise Ireland and Dublin City Council.
The program in Dublin will be headed by Eoghan Jennings, the former CFO of Xing. We will see the start of the application period during the summer season but for those of you in Madrid, the application period is now open till May 15!
