Start-up fund attracts interest in the Valley

ENTERPRISE IRELAND’S Silicon Valley office is receiving eight times more calls from people in the region interested in establishing start-up companies in Ireland. This follows the announcement two months ago of its €10 million International Start-Up Fund.
The fund is aimed at encouraging entrepreneurs outside Ireland, particularly the Irish diaspora, to base new companies within the State. It was announced at the end of October by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton.
