Dublin has a reputation internationally for being a start-up-friendly city. The small size of the city and its open, welcoming attitude provides both international and Irish entrepreneurs with easy access to relevant decision makers and a very supportive and connected start-up ecosystem. No wonder then that, with a low level of corporate tax and minimum red tape, the World Bank ranks Ireland in the top 10 countries worldwide (2018), to start a business.
Not only does Ireland’s unique strategic location make it the perfect gateway to Europe and the US, it has also been ranked the best country in Europe for startups by smallbusinessprices.co.uk. In Dublin, you will have access to a young, diverse, highly educated and highly skilled workforce, both Irish and International, who enjoy a great quality of life. Dublin is particularly well set-up for start-up businesses, with many supports both financial and non-financial in place, especially for those introducing a new or innovative product or service to international markets.
