Global Ambition

Local Enterprise Offices work in close partnership with Enterprise Ireland, the Irish State agency that works with Irish enterprises to help them start, grow, innovate and win export sales in global markets

In the past year more than 170 LEO client companies made the transition to Enterprise Ireland. It’s a major milestone for any startup because it is a move designed to support them as they scale up and grow sales internationally.

Enterprise Ireland offers a wide range of supports for startups including market insights and access to international networks.

Its High Potential Start-Up (HPSU) Unit provides advice and funding assistance to early-stage businesses with global ambition.

For early-stage startups with an innovative idea, Enterprise Ireland’s New Frontiers programme provides mentoring, business incubation space and a €15,000 scholarship payment to help you successfully start and grow a business.
