NDRC study on startup ecostystem

A study into NDRC’s portfolio of companies shows that one-in-three startups are eyeing UK expansion in the next five years, with similar hopes for Australia and New Zealand. Unsurprisingly, both the UK and US are cited as important markets for Irish digital entrepreneurs looking to scale, with current operations in the US very significant.

Almost one-third of entrepreneurs have no formal education in business or technology areas, with just 39 per cent having a background in computing, according to the research.
