Why partner with Irish businesses?

Europe’s fastest growing economy

Irish businesses are globalised, forward-looking and ambitious – their partners benefit from this dynamic approach.

One of the world’s most innovative ecosystems

Irish small and medium businesses are the most innovative in Europe and are supported by a world-class R&D ecosystem.

A global technology centre

Irish companies grow up alongside the biggest names in tech, life sciences and financial services and meet the standards of global leaders.

A culture of entrepreneurship

Irish people are renowned for developing business opportunities worldwide and their ambition means a sharp focus on success.

The Irish Advantage

Innovative, flexible and trusted – Irish companies are delivering competitive advantage across key Nordic industries. Ireland’s uniquely open, fast-moving and collaborative economy has developed business people and companies with an unequalled track record of meeting the needs of global market leaders.

Innovation is a common strength that Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway share. All three countries rank at the top of the Bloomberg’s Innovation 2018 list.

Ireland also shares the Nordic countries’ strong emphasis on R&D, with Enterprise Ireland supporting over 1,000 collaborations between industry and academia in 2017.  Ireland also ranked number one globally for manufacturing value-added, efficiency and productivity – areas which were highlighted in the report as key needs in Nordic businesses.
