911 jobs announced nationally at start-up firms with Govt support.

Fine Gael Dún Laoghaire TD, Mary Mitchell O’ Connor, has welcomed the announcement by Minister for Enterprise, Jobs and innovation, Richard Bruton, that 39 new jobs are to be created at the Digital Marketing Institute in Dún Laoghaire. The Digital Marketing Institute is one of 53 new high potential start up companies with a total of 911 jobs were announced today. The jobs have been created as a result of support provided to the companies by the Government through Enterprise Ireland.

“I am delighted to hear that the Digital Marketing Institute, an Irish company based in Dún Laoghaire, will be creating 39 new jobs. The announcement represents an important economic boost to the town of Dún Laoghaire and to the wider area.

“As a local representative, I am delighted to see a Dún Laoghaire based initiative achieving success and providing employment and I am delighted that the Government has played a part in the creation of these jobs. The Digital Marketing Institute received support through Enterprise Ireland’s High Potential Start-Up programme which aims to work with entrepreneurs who have an innovative idea that will create much needed jobs in this country.

“Creating jobs is this Government’s number one priority. As well driving foreign direct investment into the country, we are also placing a huge emphasis on growing the indigenous sector which will match the level of success of big international companies that have set up in Ireland.

“Since coming into office last year, this Government has introduced a wide range of stimulus measures aimed at supporting indigenous companies to succeed in export markets. These include, establishing a new potential exporters division in Enterprise Ireland to support exporters, monitoring support programmes to help companies improve their performance, and new funding mechanisms such as the credit guarantee scheme and the microfinance fund which will provide over ■800 million of new funds for Irish businesses.

“I would like to thank Minister Bruton and Enterprise Ireland for supporting the creation of these jobs in Dún Laoghaire and further afield.”
