IN-Dublin: New business network established for returning emigrants

Mentoring programmes and social events aim to help returning Irish make industry connections

Have you returned to Ireland recently, or are planning to do so soon? Want to link up with other returning emigrants, or people who might connect you to the right people in your industry, or help you with your business idea?

Irish Network Dublin (IN-Dublin) is a new business network connected with the Irish Network-USA, which has 19 chapters across the US helping Irish and Irish-American professionals to connect with each other. IN-USA has a membership of about 3,500.

The new Dublin-based chapter aims to “provide a forum for returning emigrants”, especially those moving back from the US. It plans to organise mentoring programmes for young professionals, as well as social and cultural events to connect people at all stages of their careers who have returned to Ireland from abroad.

IN-Dublin also aims to provide support to Irish professionals looking to move to the US, by connecting them with mentors and other experienced businesspeople over there.
