Broadcaster and rugby commentator George Hook has been named official ambassador for the ‘Ireland, Gateway to Europe’ event at Silicon Valley Bank in California next month, aimed at encouraging C-suite US executives to invest in Ireland.

Ireland, Gateway to Europe is 100pc privately funded, with companies financing their own participation.

Irish business leaders will meet their counterparts at a summit in Silicon Valley Bank, San Francisco, California, on 4 April.

As Ireland’s largest private industry-led FDI initiative, Ireland, Gateway to Europe, is a not-for-profit collaborative initiative to assist US-based founders, CFOs, CTOs and VCs in considering using Ireland as a base to internationalise.

More than 750 US investors have attended The Ireland, Gateway To Europe events to date, and at least 600 attendees are expected this year.

Previous speakers at events have included Guidewire, LogMeIn, Microsoft, CA Technologies, HubSpot and Congressman Richard Neal (Massachusetts). This year, there will be speakers from Silicon Valley Bank, IDA Ireland, Nitro and many others, to share their story of setting up in Ireland.
