Prepared in May 2015 by Lynda Conlon & Aidan Stennett
This paper compares the range of support for entrepreneurship in Northern Ireland (NI) and the Republic of Ireland (RoI). It examines these supports against the background of the recently published RoI policy framework, the National Policy Statement on Entrepreneurship in Ireland.
The paper provides an overview of the relevant schemes and initiatives delivered in NI and RoI. It also highlights the tax based incentives provided to entrepreneurs and initiatives that specifically target High Potential StartUps (HPSUs).
