The ambition for Irish enterprise set out in this strategy will also require Enterprise Ireland to embrace change and innovation, across our people, processes and structures.

Our culture, values and commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion underpin our vision.

Developing our skilled, technology-enabled and future-ready global team, which is client focused and committed to public service excellence, will underpin the achievement of the ambitions set out in this strategy.

Our partnerships, and extensive collaboration across the enterprise and innovation ecosystem, will be critical to the delivery of Government enterprise policy and Enterprise Ireland’s strategy.


Our Values align with our culture and are at the heart of how we work with each other in realising our Vision for our people, Irish enterprise and for wider economic and social impact.

Strategic Focus

Enterprise Ireland will undertake key organisational initiatives to support the delivery of our strategy in the following areas:

Service Excellence

Delivering client-led, agile, innovative and digitalised services, utilising data insights and client feedback to inform decision making.

We will strengthen the efficiency and effectiveness of our service delivery and maximise economic impact, through product review and evaluation and international benchmarking with peer agencies and networks, such as the small advanced economies initiative.


Fostering an inclusive work culture that supports, empowers and engages our people, enabling them to reach their full potential and contribute to purposeful work.

Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

We are committed to ensuring inclusion, and equal opportunities for all, promoting gender equality, diversity and inclusion across all our activities.

Extensive investment in professional capability and future skills programmes to support the development of our people, enabling them to contribute to transformational change across our client base.

Strategic Partnerships

Harnessing our connected interests and relationships to leverage external funding and knowledge resource, creating more opportunities for the growth and success of Irish enterprises.

Developing Shared Enterprise Policy Priorities

We will advocate for Irish enterprise across government, and the business enabling ecosystem, informing and influencing policy development and strengthening the environment for doing business.

Public Sector Sustainability

Enterprise Ireland will help to meet the challenges of the sustainability transition, contributing to the achievement of the target of a reduction in public sector emissions by 51% by 2030.
