Today began with a delicious breakfast at the hotel. We then traveled to IDA Ireland. They are a government funded company very similar to Connect Ireland. They also focus on bringing companies to Ireland and create jobs in the economy. We then traveled to Oracle, where we had an interactive presentation. We were able to network with some of the employees and understand how the company operates. We then walked down a path to Enterprise Ireland. Enterprise Ireland was also very similar to Connect Ireland and IDA Ireland however they were different in the fact that they invest in companies to own equity. After that, I went shopping for new shoes and continued the evening with the group for dinner at Irish House Party. We had a delicious dinner and then enjoyed traditional Irish music.
