Calling all entrepreneurs and start-ups – Fumbally Exchange Balbriggan is open for business

Fumbally Exchange Balbriggan, a new not-for-profit innovation hub, is issuing an invitation to all entrepreneurs, start-ups, sole traders and creative professionals – it’s time to join the business revolution.  If you already run a small business or want to start one, why not come along and find out how you can work in a supportive, collaborative environment.  

WHERE:                 Fumbally Exchange Balbriggan, 10 Railway St, Balbriggan, Co Dublin 

Why join Fumbally Exchange?

Fumbally Exchange Balbriggan offers low-cost, low-risk business incubation. For €50 per week, entrepreneurs, creative professionals and start-ups can rent a fully-serviced desk in shared office space on Railway St Balbriggan, Co Dublin – right across from the train station.  

It’s not just about the desk. More importantly, members get to network, share knowledge, brainstorm, learn business strategy and work together. 

“Collaboration is key,” said George Boyle, architect and founder of Fumbally Exchange.           “The members of Fumbally Exchange are individual businesses, but when they come together, they can take on bigger projects than they could do alone.” 


The Fumbally Exchange approach works

The first Fumbally Exchange, off Clanbrassil St in Dublin city centre, was founded in 2010 and is now home to more than 50 small businesses. This has been achieved through the effort and imagination of a group of determined designers and innovators. 

Its success was recognised when George Boyle was named as a recipient of the Arthur Guinness Fund Social Entrepreneur 2011 award for the Fumbally Exchange project.

Making Work - Together

 “We were determined to prove that by working together and supporting each other, we could fight the negative effects of recession – one small business at a time,” said Boyle. “We are doing that every day. Come and meet us in Fumbally Exchange Balbriggan to find out more.”
