Through our sponsorship of industry awards and events, we support the local SME community.

We regularly sponsor award ceremonies that celebrate best practice, such as digital excellence, in the Irish business community. These have included the Retail Excellence Awards, the Small Firms Association (SFA) National Small Business Awards, and Digital Business Ireland, National Digital Awards.

New for 2023, we’re delighted to be supporting the Student Enterprise Programme in association with the Local Enterprise Office network and continue to be a category sponsor at the annual BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition. We relish the opportunity to acknowledge the excellent work undertaken by inspiring student competitors.

We continue to build and strengthen relationships with SME, micro-enterprise and tech representative bodies. These include the Local Enterprise Offices, Chambers of Commerce and TechIreland.

We have established strategic sponsorships with the Small Firms Association, Digital Business Ireland, Retail Excellence and Hardware Association Ireland.  By working with these groups, we engage their networks to advocate for digital adoption among their members and communicate the benefits for businesses of identifying themselves online as Irish with a .ie website.
