|Dublin, 7th March 2018 – Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys TD today announced the creation of 231 jobs in Dublin across eight high growth companies from Europe and the US.
The investments are supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
Speaking at today’s announcement Minister Heather Humphreys TD said she warmly welcomed these new companies. “Ireland has indeed been the beneficiary of significant FDI from some of the biggest companies in the world. We intend to be just as successful in securing investment from companies in new and emerging sectors. All of the companies here today, who are at the forefront of their technologies, have been identified as having high growth potential. It is terrific news that they have decided to locate in Ireland. I look forward to their future expansion here and wish them all the best.”
Welcoming the announcement, Martin Shanahan CEO, IDA Ireland said “IDA Ireland’s high growth businesses represent an increasingly important part of Ireland’s high tech business ecosystem. Ireland remains a compelling location for early stage start-up companies to service a growing customer base in Europe.”
