The study is an in-depth examination of the Start-Up Entrepreneur Programme (STEP) by which start-up founders, innovative entrepreneurs and their families come to Ireland. The report briefly considers the Irish start-up landscape and how policy has developed in relation to the migration of non-EEA entrepreneurs, as well as planned future policy direction in this regard.
