Leading Irish tech hub Platform94 recently announced the launch of its latest initiative, ‘The International Scale-up Programme’, in partnership with Enterprise Ireland.

Officially unveiled by the Minister of State in the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment Dara Calleary, its aim is to help increase the number of successful Irish-born companies overseas through empowering and mentoring entrepreneurs to grow their business in a chosen foreign market. Previously known as Galway Technology Centre, Platform94 is a fast-growing focal point for entrepreneurs in the west and northwest of the country who wish to scale their business to new heights.

Applications are currently being sought for the new pilot programme, which will run for twelve weeks, beginning in Q4, 2023. A sizeable number of ambitious companies in the region are expected to participate in the comprehensive mentor-led practical curriculum, with the help of renowned scaling up coaches and experts from Trade Promotion authority, OCO Global and Platform94.

The International Scale-up Programme is open to applicants and will close on Friday, October 13th. For more information and to apply, please visit platform94.ie /news/platform94-west-nw-international-scaling-programme/.
