The Irish Business Network in Germany was founded in 2006. When originally established, the IBN was managed centrally by Enterprise Ireland. During 2011 the network evolved so that management was transferred to a committee made up of IBN members. The IBN Germany is now a non-profit registered association (“eingetragener Verein”) and is managed by a voluntary executive board, Executive Steering Committee and local committees.
We host regular networking and social events across each of our chapters throughout the year. See our events calendar for further information on events, which include an annual spring golf tournament, participation in the Dusseldorf marathon or our IBN ball and gala dinner each November.
We apply regularly to the Emigrant Support Programme for specific funding provided by the Irish government.
