Escape the Trap – Introducing Teamwork Catalyst


You may have heard our big news! We recently moved into some new digs! We’ve got big plans for and big plans require lots of people to make them happen.

In time we’ll need more space, but it’ll be a while before we’re calling the slide manufacturers again. We like to be prepared though, so we held onto our old office space and have decided to put it to good use!

We’d like to take this opportunity to tell you about our new little venture called Teamwork Catalyst — a SaaS incubator for early-stage startups.

We want to encourage businesses to grow, so we’re offering this unused office space to SaaS startups. This means that they will have access to an office with free rent,Wi-Fi, coffee and snacks. Not only that, but Peter and Daniel, the two founders of, will meet with the businesses in the incubator once a month and offer mentorship if needed.

There is no catch. All that we ask is that you do your best work and get your business of the ground.

Move In, Get to Work!
This initiative started for a number of reasons. First of all, we know the pressures of being early stage startup, and it’s no joke! We worked double-time to keep food on the table while we pursued our dream. We’re hoping that with a little support with business mentoring and basic overhead costs, other entrepreneurs can avoid the same trap.

Secondly, we want to encourage people to start their own business. Cork is a great place to have a start-up, and we want to help the burgeoning tech community thrive here. Since we had some office space empty anyway, this felt like the right thing to do.

We’ve had great interest, and we’ve already have some very promising companies using the space. We can’t wait to see them flourish. Here’s a proper introduction:

Backify: Back-end service for developers to enable people to build their MVP faster. Only front-end code must be developed, back-end is supported by Backify.
Gymix: Creating music playlists for gyms, integrating sales commercials to promote gym products.
Pingy: Web design software with a focus on UX. Web designers won’t need any command line anymore.
Platform Avenue: Talent management suite for creation, promotion, & managing applications tool with smart forms, media uploads, video interviewing.
Referral Works: Talent referral platform for recruitment. Helps recruiters to source, validate and pre-assess referred candidates from an employee’s network
by financially incentivising them to provide key insights into candidates. Clever matching algorithm filters and ranks candidates by suitability.

The Fine Print
We do have a couple of requirements for this arrangement to be a success:

  • Must be building (or aspire to be building) a true SaaS product; not a service.
  • Must have an existing website or landing page which allows taking of email addresses or trial sign-up.
  • Maximum of 10 people per company.

If you are or you know of a startup that fits the bill and would like to apply, please contact us through our website. Once we receive your application, we’ll sit down over a coffee and see if your business is the right fit for the incubator.
