Mentorship Program for Irish Tech Companies

Blarney-Castle-1446This week, former Intel chairman Craig Barrett is traveling to Ireland alongside senior executives in order to strengthen “developmental ties” between Ireland and Silicon Valley. During this three day visit, they will announce a mentorship program which offers one year’s worth of experience at a U.S. technology corporation or venture capital firm. Dr. Barrett held a private dinner with Maire Geoghegan-Quinn, European commissioner for research and innovation, and with Dr. James J. Browne,  president of NUI Galway.

Barrett encouraged Ireland to “focus on enlarging its indigenous high-tech sector to drive economic recovery.” He explained that there is “significant opportunity for growth driven by these firms. Ireland and the U.S. are in similar circumstances- if we don’t take advantage of our skilled workforces and entrepreneurial spirit we will lose out to emerging economies. We are in Ireland this week to support Irish tech companies who have the ambition to grow and succeed, and the mentorship program is one way of doing this.”
