Causeway is a business networking organisation, supported by the Scottish and Irish governments, that connects professionals on both sides of the Irish Sea. Their aim is to facilitate business growth and collaboration through networking and events.
They are a not-for-profit membership organisation that builds professional connections and provides a valuable and proven platform for members to meet, cooperate and collaborate. Receiving support from both the Scottish and Irish Governments, the purpose of Causeway is to foster closer economic ties across Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland, providing a robust business platform across all three regions, to share opportunities and knowledge.
Established in 2016, Causeway (formerly the Irish Business Network Scotland) was born out of an ambition to support businesses from Scotland and Ireland that wished to explore their respective neighbouring markets. It was launched by a group of professionals from Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, who believe that enhancing communication and building relationships between individuals and organisations from both countries will add significant value to their business.
Scotland and Ireland have a unique, long-standing relationship. At Causeway, they feel that it is only right to nurture this relationship for the benefit of businesses in each market. The decision by UK voters to leave the European Union further emphasised the need for a business exchange to help retain and further drive the strong cultural and economic connections between Ireland and Scotland.
We have been working with Causeway since 2017 and we offer dual membership for both organisations for members that wish to access markets across the whole of the UK and Ireland.
