Infographic of Technology Companies in Northern Ireland

Recently we completed our review of all the technology companies in Northern Ireland. We found 684 and have completed our first pass of research.

Northern Ireland has a strong technology sector that given the age of the tech companies is clearly growing rapidly. There is a strong focus on Software Development and IT services. From our research we can see there appears to be a growing number of startups and early-stage companies, many of which are focused on emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain, and cybersecurity.

The Northern Ireland government has made significant investments in the technology sector in recent years, with the goal of positioning the region as a hub for innovation and digital transformation. Initiatives like the Digital Catapult Northern Ireland and the Belfast Region City Deal are aimed at supporting the growth of the sector by providing funding, training, and other resources to businesses.

The recent Windsor Framework places Northern Ireland in a unique position within Europe. We expect that this will provide plenty of opportunitites to Northern Ireland acorss all sectors including technology.
