This network is all about identifying policy levers that can unleash high impact entrepreneurship and innovation. It is made up of “startup savvy” policymakers and program leaders focused on exploring different regulatory changes and other policy ideas to help accelerate new and young firm formation in their economies.

This Startup Nations group shares ideas about what is working and what is not in their respective environments; connects to research and communicates priorities to a Global Entrepreneurship Research Network (GERN) and its individual members, and enables informal knowledge sharing among economies focused on leveraging entrepreneurs and their startups in order to create jobs, build economies and expand human welfare.

Eoin Costello, CEO of Startup Ireland said the event is a fantastic fit for Ireland given the country’s rapid recovery, which has led it to becoming Europe’s highest growing economy. .
