tech ireland logoGreat news from TechIreland which has just launched the RestartBizMap, a fab new initiative aimed at highlighting innovative technology solutions to enable businesses in Ireland to operate in these disruptive Covid times. The project which is supported by Technology Ireland, InterTradeIreland and Skillnet Irelandaims to encourage technology adoption by the industry, promote homegrown tech innovation and also connect technology providers to industry sectors: retail, manufacturing and services.

To date, a hundred tech companies have already added their ‘restart solutions’ to the Map which focuses on 10 categories including remote working, new supply chains, reskilling/training, employee engagement, selling online etc.

John O’Dea, CEO of TechIreland explains: We are aiming to connect Irish technology providers to adopters. Irish tech companies have a range of innovations to help industry adapt to the new post-covid requirements. At the same time, many companies are looking for new solutions, whether they are in construction or healthcare or the hospitality sector. Until now there hasn’t been an easy way for the two sides to connect. We hope this new directory will go some way towards helping them create new opportunities for the economy.

Industry in Ireland must continue to adapt to the ever-changing business environment. There are new innovative solutions being created every day to help companies shift their operations online while remaining productive and working remotely.

This new initiative aims to help businesses remain open and functioning. It will focus on real solutions to help businesses restart and reimagine how they operate. It will highlight funding and tender opportunities and hopefully foster new partnerships.

The #RestartBizMap is an all-island initiative that aims to foster cross-border collaboration. “These are challenging times for businesses in both Ireland and Northern Ireland,” said Aidan Gough, Chief Executive of InterTradeIreland. “Every sector is having to adapt to new realities and adopt different ways of working. But this is also a time of great opportunity for new technologies and solutions that can enable more sustainable and efficient ways of working.”
