Welcome to our blog!
Our aim is to focus on funding for ICT start-ups in Ireland. We will explore the various sources of available funding and how each source is linked to each stage of start-up development. We will consider the factors that influence the choice of funding, the application process and qualifying criteria as well as observing the current trends and challenges in sourcing funding for ICT start-ups in Ireland.
We will review the backdrop of funding for ICT start-ups i.e. the evolution of the Irish technology ecosystem, the enabling factors for its growth and what exactly is meant by “start-up”.
We will evaluate funding within a broader context with consideration to the importance of start-ups in terms of job and economic growth, how funding is only one element of a start-up ecosystem and the importance of nurturing and promoting entrepreneurship.
We hope you enjoy our blog!
All the best,
Ilya, Wicus, Guillaume, Piush, Virginia
