EI targets London in hunt for IT firms
FOR a lot of people on this island, there will be a beautiful irony to Ireland trying to lure companies here from London. In truth though, the fact that it is London that is coming under pressure from Enterprise Ireland's (EI) efforts to attract tech start-ups here is purely incidental. EI is under orders to attract technology-based business to Ireland from overseas. London is where a lot of this business is based. It's a simple mathematical problem.
Now let's hope that some of the firms that do come here can scale up quickly and create the most prized asset of all -- jobs.
