Enterprise Ireland has today announced the launch of ‘Start In Ireland’, a single online repository of information for all things relating to the Irish start-up landscape.

The new online portal simplifies the process of finding relevant start-up information and provides a pathway through a detailed list of supports available to people who want to start or grow their early-stage businesses. Available on desktop and mobile, users can easily refine their search results to identify suitable supports for their business needs.

Ireland’s support for entrepreneurship continues to grow and our thriving start-up community is underpinned by a multitude of relevant supports and events, including start-up ‘office hours’ for first-time founders, pre-accelerators, accelerators, competitions, hackathons and more.

Commenting on the announcement, Jenny Melia, Divisional Manager, High Potential Start-Ups, Enterprise Ireland said, “Enterprise Ireland works closely with start-up businesses from the very early-stages of development. While there is a wide range of information available from multiple sources on how to set up your business and the supports available, it can be challenging to find the right information at the right time.

“So, we are delighted to launch Enterprise Ireland’s ‘Start In Ireland’ portal after an extensive and collaborative development process with industry and stakeholders. We believe that this portal solves a real problem for potential, new and existing start-ups. By offering a one-stop-shop, start-ups can easily access information about the vast array of supports on offer throughout the country.”

Updated by industry, the portal can be accessed via Enterprise Ireland sites https://globalambition.ie/startinireland/ and https://www.enterprise-ireland.com/en/startinireland/. Enterprise Ireland is also in discussions with industry stakeholders to host the portal on their own sites to ensure the widest access possible.
