Start-up Ireland — 5 Days · 5 Cities · 5 Industries

Start-up Ireland

The most comprehensive map of Ireland’s start-up ecosystem has been produced by the guys at Start-up Ireland. The “gathering” is being dubbed as one of the biggest national events in the world and will take place across five Irish cities over five days and includes five industries …

The Start-up Map displays, for example, more than 844 start-ups, 132 multinationals and 71 sources of funding.

The gathering commences on the 5th to the 10th of October 2015, with over 50 events being planned so far.

If you’re a start-up and haven’t registered your place on the map, then contact [email protected].

Start-up, The Five Cities

The events will run in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Waterford with the aim of channelling and growing the start-up sector throughout Ireland.

The gathering’s theme is “Start, Scale and Succeed from Ireland”, and it will mainly promote entrepreneurship, and develop world-class regional “start-up hubs” around existing industry strengths in Ireland. This will provide fuel for potential start-ups and those already in the market may scale up!

The Gathering is set to showcase Ireland as a leading start-up sector for multinational entrepreneurs, investors and R&D teams. The initiative is backed by the Irish government and may attract up to 15,000 people. Its creators aim to make Ireland a “start-up-hub” by 2020.

Follow the latest updates using #StartUpIRL.

If you’re a new company starting up, STAR can help you Start, Scale and Succeed in international markets. We provide translation services for websites, documents and apps in over 70 languages. Let’s start something big together.

    What is the IMI System and SOLVIT?

    European Union Flag, IMI System and SOLVIT

    EU flag

    The IMI System and SOLVIT

    The European Union along with the wider European Economic Area is becoming more integrated.

    This is good news for those who wish to travel within the EU and the EEA on professional grounds. The EEA consists of all EU countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. This means that those countries not in the EU can perform business operations with pretty much all the rights as those countries that are members of the European Union.

    This closely integrated Europe has set up two services: the IMI System and SOLVIT

    What is the IMI (Internal Market Information) System?

    IMI is designed to help European administrations get answers to questions such as, “I have asked my Norwegian colleagues if an electrician who is providing his services here is established in Norway. When can I expect a reply?”

    And “an Estonian baker would like to open a bakery in our region. How can I find out if he has the required professional experience?”

    This system is an online multilingual tool that aids such administrations, companies and individuals in their co-operation with each other. It also makes for a speedier and more convenient service helping reduce costs caused by delays. Citizens and businesses alike can benefit from the IMI system, making most of the possibilities of the single market. You can visit the IMI official website.

    What is SOLVIT?

    SOLVIT is problem-solving service, user-friendly and free-of-charge to all European Union citizens and EEA citizens as well. For EU citizens, living, working or studying in any EU country of your choice is a basic EU right. This is also the same for all businesses and emerging enterprises: they can establish, provide their services and do business throughout the EU.

    As one can expect, certain problems arise for those working and studying in another EU country apart from their own. This is where SOLVIT comes into play. If one encounters such difficulties in the European market, they can visit the Your Europe portal on europa.eu/youreurope.

    Real-world examples of successful SOLVIT stories

    A Polish national had his Irish engineering qualifications recognised in Poland, thanks for SOLVIT’s intervention.

    A Turkish national wanted to be present with his Danish wife in Germany, where she was about to give birth but he was not granted a visa for travel there. SOLVIT intervened and resolved the issue: the man was granted a visa for Germany by the German authorities who issued a certificate attesting the couple’s financial situation, which was needed by the German consulate in Istanbul to issue the said visa.

    SOLVIT can help

    Citizens

    • Residence rights
    • Recognition of professional qualifications
    • Motor vehicle registration
    • Employment rights
    • Social security
    • Taxation
    • Driving licences
    • et cetera

    Businesses

    • Market access for products
    • Provision of services
    • Establishment as self-employed
    • Public procurement
    • VAT reimbursement
    • Free movement of capital
    • Border controls
    • et cetera
