Incubator Visa for Ireland

Post by Ximon » Sun Jun 06, 2021 3:43 pm

Anyone familiar with the Incubator Visa programme? As I understand it, it acts as a a pre-STEP programme that gives an individual the right to live in Ireland for up to one year while they plan their Irish business by joining an approved Irish startup incubator/accelerator. No upfront financial investment is required.

I could find very little about this programme on Inis' website and nothing about it on the Enterprise Ireland web site. ... 0Programme

Wondering what the specific process is to join an approved incubator and whether the programme has had any success.

You were referring to a press release that was 7 years old. In the world of politics where new directives and policies emerge every few months, this is ancient.

All the most up-to-date policies regarding IIP & STEP are on the INIS website ... whatisstep
