TechIreland | Blog | The Figures Are In

Twice a year TechIreland will release a review of all innovation funding we’ve tracked in Ireland in the last two quarters. Today we release those figures for January to June 2018.

All the headlines you’re looking for are at the click of an image (below), but spoiler alert: H1 is the story of a small number of large rounds completely overshadowing a too-few number of smaller rounds, and that should make us all concerned about how well we’re fueling the next generation of great Irish companies.

There are graphs and tables and pie charts and maps that make the data quickly digestible. On the story map (click image below) scroll down to find a great podcast discussion on the figures with Brian Caulfield of Draper Esprit. Click “Download” button to get a shareable PDF version, and “Buy the Data” to buy the full spreadsheet with the funding numbers we’re tracking since January 2017.

There’s a lot of interesting content here. We hope you enjoy it and that it helps you to continue to build your knowledge, and maybe your advocacy, around funding for innovation in Ireland.
