The Irish Business Network (IBN) Germany is a network of professionals working in Germany who are Irish or have an affiliation with Ireland. The IBN provides members with an opportunity to network, socialise and meet like-minded people. Membership is free and our members come from diverse backgrounds and industries from throughout Germany and Ireland. Throughout the year, local chapters organise business and social events, with the support of the executive committee, to keep our members connected and up-to-date on industry-relevant topics or the latest news from Ireland. We also collaborate with other Irish clubs and societies in Germany and are actively supported, among others, by the Irish Embassy in Berlin the Consulate General in Frankfurt and Enterprise Ireland.

How are we financed?

The IBN is a registered non-profit / charitable organisation (Verein) and is managed by its members on a voluntary basis. We are funded through sponsorship and strategic partnerships. In addition, we apply regularly to the Emigrant Support Programme for specific funding provided by the Irish government.
