What We Do

Enterprise Ireland High Potential Start-Up (HPSU) Funding

Enterprise Ireland supports High Potential Start-Up (HPSU) Companies. HPSUs are start-up businesses with the potential to develop an innovative product or service for sale on international markets and the potential to create 10 jobs and €1m in sales within 3 to 4 years of starting up.

To avail of HPSU supports, you must be a client company of Enterprise Ireland (EI). HPSU clients of EI should contact their Enterprise Ireland Adviser to discuss funding supports.

If you are not currently a client of EI and want to learn more about qualifying as a HPSU, please go to EI’s Start a Business in Ireland section. Funding supports from EI are closely aligned to a company’s stage of development. Broadly, high potential start-up companies are viewed as being at feasibility stage; investor ready stage or growth stage.

Companies who are at the feasibility stage can apply for Enterprise Ireland supports aimed at developing the business idea or proposal to the point where it is investor ready.
