High Potential Start-Up (HPSU) Funding
Enterprise Ireland is responsible for supporting High Potential Start-Up (HPSU) Companies. HPSUs are start-up businesses with the potential to develop an innovative product or service for sale on international markets and the potential to create 10 jobs and €1m in sales within 3 to 4 years of starting up.
HPSU clients of Enterprise Ireland should contact their Enterprise Ireland Adviser to discuss funding supports.
If you are not currently a client of Enterprise Ireland and want to learn more about qualifying as a HPSU, please go to our Start a Business in Ireland section.
Funding supports from Enterprise Ireland are closely aligned to a company’s stage of development. Broadly, high potential start-up companies are viewed as being at feasibility stage; investor ready stage or growth stage.
