About the Community

Our Story So Far

christian-bowen-JXX_GonMj5s-unsplash

Ireland Together was born from a 4 hour zoom call among four entrepreneurs (some of whom had never met in person), with diverse corporate and founder backgrounds.  United by shared values, and fuelled by a desire to help companies navigate and adapt as the Pandemic unfolded, we put our busy minds together to see what value we could create for Irish businesses.

Within 2 weeks of meeting, Ireland Together was launched as an online community for business leaders to quickly access the resources, advice and networks needed to thrive.   We believe in the power of a diverse collective to solve our most complex challenges hence the platform is industry agnostic, free, and open to everyone.  We are thankful to have the support of some large tech companies and national media outlets around the country as we continue to build a thriving and trusted community.

Almost a year later, Ireland Together has become the go-to resource for over 1,300 professionals and business owners, spanning the 32 counties of Ireland, and further afield to over 16 countries.

The community services and activities range from weekly learning sessions across hot topics like Finance, Marketing, Sales and Technology, as well as on-demand advice, speed networking events, virtual entertainment, drop-in coffee sessions, business coaching and mentoring, focus groups, beta user groups, startup support and much much more.

While born during a pandemic, and in lockdown, Ireland Together addresses a growing desire and need for leaders to connect regardless of location. For many, it’s a lifeline and opportunity to come together, share knowledge and experience, and feel part of a vibrant and welcoming community.  Our members are the essence of the community and inspire us every day with their resilience and mindset.

Ireland Together remains a free, non-profit business community, the power of which, combined with empathy, trust, kindness, paying-it-forward, reciprocity and collective thinking, will ensure our future success, together.

Member Testimonials

Probably the best description of Ireland Together is a community workplace. It’s a great place just to have those open conversations you would have in an office space. It’s growing and growing but retaining its ethos of bringing people together. The real value for me has been the connections, the people, the introductions. I love the coaching group - I think it's fantastic - the discussion that goes on around it is absolutely brilliant.
Ireland Together is a brilliant manifestation of some of the best qualities and traits of the Irish people. We’re an entrepreneurial bunch, you can see that in not only in the community, but in the start up environment across the country. We also respond well to a crisis - we don’t do self pity, we try to get stuck in, and we don’t tolerate egos. If you roll all of these qualities up - what you get is the essence of Ireland Together. It's a group of diverse people looking to share knowledge, help and support each other, while having a few laughs along the way.
