ENTERPRISE IRELAND LAUNCHES FINTECH SECTOR CENSUS TO MAP ECOSYSTEM
Enterprise Ireland today launched the first Fintech Census which aims to accurately map Ireland’s Fintech sector for the first time. The Fintech Census initiative is a key action of the Department of Finance’s IFS 2020 Action Plan for 2018, launched by Minister of State for Financial Services and Insurance, Michael D’Arcy TD in January 2018. Open to all Irish and international Fintech companies operating in Ireland, the Fintech Census aims to provide a crucial fact-base for fintech companies, investors, policymakers and other stakeholders on the scope, scale and strategic positioning of the Fintech sector in Ireland and to chart its growth. In addition to informing future policy across the areas of tax, employment, regulation and investment, the completed census report will allow a comparison of the Irish Fintech sector to other leading Fintech hubs and highlight areas where Ireland needs to improve.
