The Irish Innovation Centre
The Irish Innovation Centre was founded by John Hartnett, a graduate of LIT and for whom the Hartnett Centre is named after. The Irish Innovation Centre is the Silicon Valley launching pad for International Technology companies. From San Jose, California - the capital of Silicon Valley - companies rapidly accelerate their growth by taking advantage of the extensive services available from the IIC. The Hartnett EAC works closely with the IIC in Silicon Valley organising Trade Missions for our clients to Silicon Valley and working with the IIC to help provide the best service possible for our clients.
Just like the Hartnett Enterprise Acceleration Centre - The Irish Innovation Centre provides an environment for like-minded entrepreneurs to gain access to venture firms, bankers, customers, suppliers and employees that will enable their companies to grow and flourish.
The Irish Technology Leadership Group (ITLG) is an affiliate partner of the Innovation Centre and provides residents access to a “built in” network of successful Silicon Valley business executives from leading technology companies such as Cisco, Intel Logitech and more.
