Programmed to succeed

Galway attracts the biggest names in global business. Since the late 60s, its economic development has thrived, largely fuelled by global firms clamouring to establish a base at the gateway to Europe. Medtech and ICT sectors have flourished since Boston Scientific and Medtronic opened their doors in the 1990s.

Galway is now recognised as one of five global medtech hubs. Invention is the lifeblood of the city. The presence of IBM, Oracle and SAP proves Galway has the right ecosystem for tech companies. Its geography, connectivity, third level training and complementary business sectors offer new opportunities for enterprises to explore.
