3 Pillars of Enterprise Ireland Support 


Enterprise Ireland helps companies start, innovate and scale internationally. We have developed three pillars with specially tailored supports to reflect each stage of business development.

Start for start-ups and early-stage ventures.
Innovate for enterprises and research teams with new ideas for products, processes and services.
Scale for SMEs and larger companies capable of expanding their operations internationally.


Enterprise Ireland is one of the most prolific Start-Up investors in the world. We offer access to funding, skills development, expertise in multiple sectors, access to networks and routes to market.

Bringing an idea from conception to realisation is an Enterprise Ireland speciality. We help with R&D finance, team building, change management and access to facilities and networks.

Enterprise Ireland has a network of international offices and access to thought leaders and mentors with the knowledge to advise companies on expansion and reaching global markets.
