This was the first Enterprise Ireland Cluster Initiative of its kind. The official launch of this programme took place in June 2013. As part of a cluster of Irish organisations, it provided significant opportunities for shared learning and mutual support.

The main objective of the Cluster was to assist companies to win increased international business and compete successfully with our other European and global partners. Our particular focus was the New and Emerging markets, many of which are funded by the International Financial Institutions such as EC and World Bank.

ConsultingIreland engaged experienced practitioners from the major IFIs, successful international and regional companies, foreign Embassies and Trade Agencies, Irish Government and Embassy staff, Enterprise Ireland and other specialists to provide this high quality training course and ensure that attendees gained a thorough understanding of IFIs and how to secure contracts with them.
