The NEVYs are THE unifying celebration for New England's Tech and Life Science communities; a night for investors and entrepreneurs across all stages and industries to take a break from their hard work and soak up the spotlight in style. Two parts cocktail party and one party high-energy awards show, the NEVYs celebrate the rising stars and living legends building the next generation of world-leading companies in New England. #NEVYs16

With so many of these great New England tech companies expanding across the pond to set up operations in Ireland, we at IDA Ireland and in particular our Emerging Business Team are delighted to partner with the New England Venture Capital Association (NEVCA) for a 3rd year running for the NEVYs.

Already this year we have seen Hubspot open their expanded new Dublin offices which will grow to close to 500 people over the next 3 years, whilst CarGurus set up its European Headquarters across the river from them with plans for 100 jobs over 3 years.

Since the NEVYs of 2015 we have seen Simplivity grow from serviced offices into new impressive offices in Cork, NuoDB have found a home at Dogpatch Labs in Dublin whilst Smartbear have firmly established themselves as a recognised tech presence in Galway.


Earlier this year we hosted the Pre-Nevy event where we got to mingle with the impressive nominated companies and get into the country-western theme for this year’s show. And who knows maybe, one day, these rising stars of New England will also find a home in Ireland :)


Looking forward to presenting ‘Entrepreneur of the Year in Tech’, at this years Awards. Previous winners include our friends, Dharmesh Shah and Brian Halligan, of Hubspot.  Best of luck to all nominees:
