Connecting Irish Innovation Globally

About Us

Our mission is to promote Irish Innovation and Irish Innovators globally, with a view to making impactful business connections across the Irish diaspora.

Established as a volunteer non-profit in 2013, and with communities today in New York, London and Chicago, Digital Irish provides a ‘soft-landing’ for Irish startups expanding into the USA and UK.

We accelerate access to talent, customers, partners and potential investors, through offline channels like regular fast-pitch meetup events and networking opportunities, as well as industry expert panels and fireside chats, and online digital tools.
