Find out if you can apply for business support from Enterprise Ireland

 Enterprise Ireland would like to hear from you if:

You are an entrepreneur who wants to choose Ireland as a location for your start-up.


You have an existing business and you wish to move your organisation to Ireland.


If your business meets the criteria below.


Enterprise Ireland is looking to support businesses that are:

In the process of introducing a new or innovative product or service to international markets.

Involved in manufacturing, technology or other internationally traded services.

  • capable of creating 10 jobs in Ireland and also capable of reaching €1 million in sales within three to four years of start-up.
  • led by an experienced management team who are legally entitled to trade and reside in Ireland. If you are a non EEA citizen, Ireland has introduced a new start-up entrepreneur visa.

Headquartered and controlled in Ireland. This generally means that one or more of the founders must move to Ireland and that key business functions have their global HQ here.

Note: If the company you are planning to establish in Ireland is controlled from outside of Ireland, you may qualify for assistance from our sister agency the Industrial Development Agency or IDA.  The IDA is responsible for attracting and supporting Foreign Direct Investment.
