Venture Capital has a vital role to play in seeding and growing Irish business.

Post Crisis the Government must now incentiveise and reward risk taking and entrepreneurship.

As Brian Caulfield, Chairman of the Irish Venture Capital Association recently pointed out- 20,000 jobs have been created by Irish V.C. backed companies over the past 10 years.

Seed investment into Irish business will only occur at the levels required if government actively introduces measures to reward such risk-taking.

Message to the Irish Government- "A lot done- More to do".
