About Startups & Our History

Who We Are

Connect with Startups

Ireland’s leading independent, online resource for anyone starting and growing a business. Established in 2005, we are the longest serving, largest and most comprehensive advice platform covering everything you need to know start, buy, run or sell a business.
Whether you’re looking for inspiration to launch your own start-up, the latest insights into the Tech Startup scene or tips on how to manage your startup – we’ve got it covered. This site was created by entrepreneurs to be a starting place for people interested in setting up their own business.
The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Ireland and it will be this spirit that will help to transform our economic landscape for the better. It is our hope that we can create a community for people who are interested and passionate about this area. No one alone has all the answers but by pooling resources maybe we can help each other along the way.

In 2012 we launched the Startup Awards to recognise and reward Ireland’s Startup Companies. You can find out more about the awards at
