History

Back in 2013, the London startup industry began growing exponentially and with it the demand for startup consulting which led to the launch of Startup Manufactory. As the industry kept growing in 2015 many universities began launching startup accelerators and incubator programmes in need of startup expertise so Startup Manufactory began working with them. In 2016 the firm's management team joined the European Commission as Independent Experts providing expertise on EU-wide entrepreneurship ecosystem development. In the following years the firms expanded their services to a range of public sector organisations including governmental departments, universities, and startup incubators in the British Isles, the Middle East and the EU. In response to a shift in the European political landscape Startup Manufactory moved to Ireland in 2020.
