Three things we in Ireland can do to improve our economic situation and further our strength in high tech-leadership in the world:

1. Double the population of Ireland in the next 20 years

2. Establish Ireland as the only english-speaking country with open access for tech talent

3. Establish Ireland as the gateway to Europe for China


We believe it would help our economy improve quickly to allow up to 75,000 of the world’s tech talent to

come work in Ireland. We believe this could establish up to 600,000 additional jobs in Ireland by 2015, and we believe it is worth trying this initiative.

Open Ireland

We do not need money and we do not need much time. But what we would like is to add your voice to our chorus on opening Ireland. Join the movement now, and if you would like to indicate how you agree, or a story of how an Open Ireland would help you, your community, or your business, post a response in our blog.

    This campaign is exactly what our country needs. Let’s not be so nice about it, it’s a disgrace how slow this country responds to change.

    We need talent in this sector now, not in three years time.

    Check their credentials.
    Issue Visas.
    It’s that simple.

    Could you imagine a country that refuses to allow Talent, Investors and Entrepreneurs into its Ecosystem?

    We live in one. Get the word out there.

    Brilliant initiative – inviting more talent into this country will only fuel our growth, tax paid and exports. Hope your vision removes bottleneck for those trying to recruit skilled people at a competitive remuneration package to grow their team and business-

    Thanks for taking the lead

    Great initiative this!
    In terms of IT, we have one last chance to create the Valley here in Dublin. The key is not grants, or enticements – the key is talent and we are starved of it at the moment. We are 6 months away from paying ridiculous salaries for average talent – in other words, an IT bubble. check out which is trying to get the tech sector open to talent – from anywhere.

    Leaving talented people enter Ireland and providing a highly skilled flexible workforce, has proven successful in attracting multinational investment in the past, and this has grown an Irish indigenous sector from the skills learned from the multinationals, and allowed them to compete on the international stage very successfully.
    Allowing talented people easy access to Ireland , from China, India and Eastern Europe in the sectors we wish to grow is well worth pursuing.
    If the talent is available the investors will come. It will keep costs competitive and it will allow access to world markets easily.
    We have everything in place, and our history ( no colonial, English speaking, geographical location, developed social skills,all give us a unique advantage here)

    We just need to move!
    We have the houses, we have the infrastructure all we need is the will.
