This innovative initiative is funded by the Diaspora Affairs fund of Irish Abroad Unit. This programme seeks to facilitate in practical ways those who have returned home to Ireland, having spent some years living abroad, and are setting up a new business. Thanks to the support provided there will be no charge for those selected to participate in the initiative.

Since 2018, Back for Business has helped large numbers of returning emigrants to seed and nurture their business ideas. I would strongly encourage people with a business idea who might be thinking of coming home – or have returned recently – to apply for selection.’
