“IDA Ireland’s strategy Horizon 2020, identifies winning investment from emerging sectors as one of its key targets and it is encouraging to see that since the start of 2012 alone, 40 emerging-stage companies have decided to set up FDI operations in Ireland,” says Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland.

IDA Ireland will partake in the Xsite event in Boston on June 14th, to highlight to emerging companies the benefits of locating in Ireland.
