Martin Shanahan, CEO IDA Ireland:
This is a very difficult time for business, both Irish businesses and international businesses that are based here in Ireland and indeed businesses right across the globe.
This is a global pandemic and has caused widescale disruption to the global economy in which Ireland operates.
Udemy, the largest global marketplace for learning and teaching online, announced today the opening of an expanded office in Dublin, Ireland. The new office opening represents continued investment in the company’s EMEA headquarters, follows a milestone growth year, and a recent commitment by long-time Japanese strategic partner Benesse Holdings to invest $50 million in the company.
The enticement of a relatively wealthy market of 500 million consumers often makes opening a European office one of the earlier expansion steps for American technology companies. However, there are right and wrong ways to establish a European operation, with fostering the right culture a key aspect that will significantly impact the hoped-for financial contributions.
