About Us

Bolton Trust (formerly Docklands Innovation) encourages and promotes new business enterprise in Ireland. We are an independent voluntary trust actively committed to assisting entrepreneurs to create sustainable business. We are located in Docklands Innovation Park a hub of innovation based in the Dublin Docklands.

The Bolton Trust was established in 1987 by staff of the Dublin Institute of Technology, and currently has over 150 members. This membership is largely drawn from the various disciplines of DIT, Ireland’s largest third-level technological Institute, and also from Ireland’s entrepreneurial community. The expertise of the Trust can be mobilised to help entrepreneurs to create new business enterprise. The twelve directors volunteer their time and are committed to our mission which is ‘breaking the barriers to enterprise growth’
