The US is one of the largest potential regions of expansion for Irish business, with a wide array of opportunities in tech, advanced engineering, medtech, and more.
But scaling or establishing a business in another country, with different rules, and on the far side of the Atlantic, can be a daunting challenge.
To help out growing Irish businesses, Galway Technology Centre is hosting a free webinar next Tuesday outlining the business environment in the U.S., and the supports available to Irish companies looking to expand there.
A delegation from Mentor, OH will discuss the opportunities available for Irish companies looking to establish themselves in the US, focusing on the particulars of their region, local organizations and actors that may be beneficial to Irish companies.
The City of Mentor, a regional economic hub just 20 minutes east of Cleveland, Ohio, is home to 200 plus manufacturing firms, specializing in tech sector – biotech/medtech, aerospace, advanced and precision manufacturing, and automotive supply chain, among other industry clusters.
They specialise in partnering with internationally known entities like the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University, and companies across the region to find appropriate matchmaking opportunities for international companies.
