IDA looks west for success
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.
