Online, the highlight of the SxSW conference in Texas was Enda Kenny getting his photo taken with Hulk Hogan. For the IDA’s emerging business division, the event in Austin played a key role in its bid to attract 28 new businesses to Ireland this year

While Austin has previously served as a location to meet high-potential businesses from the US west coast, the city is now a key target for the IDA.

“We set up this division in 2010. We have teams on the west coast, in New York, Atlanta, and Chicago. We’ve opened a new office in Austin supporting that team,” Barry O’Dowd, head of the emerging business division at IDA Ireland, told The Sunday Business Post.
