About the Sector

With its competitive tax and corporate regime and stable regulatory and business environment, Ireland has been described as Europe’s “Silicon Valley” – becoming the Hub of choice for technology/IP rich multinationals accessing the EU.

The consequent concentration of expertise, ideas and energy has also resulted in an explosion of technology and IP focused and driven individuals and businesses, establishing a real and vibrant knowledge based economy in Ireland.
