Talent Garden, Europe’s largest coworking network and innovation hub, opened a new campus in Dublin last year as part of a strategic partnership with Dublin City University and just announced a €44 million funding round earlier this month, with a view to further expand in Ireland to help prepare organisations for the ‘Second Machine Age’.
Talent Garden Innovation School is at the very centre of its proposition to create a digital and tech ecosystem among its community. Providing practical, industry-led training across all areas of digital innovation, it’s the first of its kind in Ireland with expert faculty from a range of companies such as Intel, IKEA, IBM, BBC, Google, industry disruptors Revolut, Alt-MBA and a solid representation of homegrown talent across design, data and digital.
The approach of the Innovation School is to focus on filling the skills gap across the digital economy including Artificial Intelligence, Data, UX Design, Digital Sales & Marketing and Digital Transformation. This is achieved by delivering industry-led and market-focused training through a range of short 1 and 2-day Masterclasses and longer 18-week Bootcamps (2 evenings per week) that are accelerated, practical and often involve project-based learning. This people driven school is made up of a multidisciplinary faculty of technologists, storytellers, innovators, educators, philosophers, researchers, designers, psychologists and business creators, who are all leaders in their respective fields and have incredible knowledge to share.
To launch its Q2 2019 programme, Talent Garden Innovation School will host an Open Day on Thursday, April 4th for those looking to accelerate their career, change career direction or for corporates looking to master the latest industry trends and gain a competitive advantage.
Running from 6pm-8.30pm on the Dublin campus, it will feature a range of speakers on topics including:

According to Ruth Kearney, Director of the Dublin Innovation School: “The future of work is changing. We are set to experience more tech innovation in the next 24 months than we’ve seen in the last 10 years – organisations need to jump on board with this and the major advancements in digital innovation. Our focus is to deliver interactive courses and practical workshops that are grounded in theory, but focused on real-world application. Put simply, we are in the business of developing great ‘digital talent’ and bringing about a digital cultural mindset within organisations.”
Innovation School Masterclasses
Designed for professionals who want to upskill, master the latest industry trends and gain a competitive advantage, these 1 and 2-day immersive Masterclasses are grounded in theory but focused on real-world application.
Innovation School Bootcamps
These practically focused, industry-driven and expert-led courses equip professionals with the skills needed to take their career to the next level. They are compact 18-week courses in a range of technology areas beginning in May 2019 – the study is part-time, two evenings a week.
Across Europe, Talent Garden Innovation School is extremely well regarded and has trained executives from the likes of Cisco Vodafone and Disney. Although coworking facilities will account for 30% of total corporate workspace by 2030, Talent Garden’s mission goes deeper – to build a dynamic ecosystem of digital innovation where members meet, work, learn and collaborate together. This is cultivated, in part, through events such as fireside chats with global tech leaders, expert advisory sessions, fundraising talks and panel debates. Earlier this year, Talent Garden Dublin also launched Ireland’s first ever VC in Residence Programme.
