Friends of Ludgate

Be a part of our success story…

Ludgate are a non-profit, social enterprise. We are extremely proud of how far we have come in our first five years at Ludgate. Through digital transformation we have enabled: 360 jobs, 170 members, 3,700 Hot Desks and delivered hundreds of programmes designed to nurture and grow our community.

We are not done though! We are more ambitious than ever – Ludgate’s vision is to be a world leader in rural regeneration through digital transformation. To that end, we have created a corporate sponsorship package called ‘Friends of Ludgate’ and we hope that you will be a part of this success story going forward. 

Friends of Ludgate will connect you to business leaders both locally here in West Cork and the many members of Ludgate who are leading corporates at a national and international level. Our first member is Minister Simon Coveney, who we recently presented an honorary membership.
