Thanks to Sifted for highlighting us as one of the Irish startups and scaleups to watch in 2021. We first made this list in 2020 and are thrilled to be featured amongst so many inspirational Irish start-ups and scaleups again in 2021. It has been a busy few months launching our product in Ireland and the UK and continuing installs in the U.S.

“So far this year Irish startups have raised €1bn from VC funds. This is just shy of the €1.2bn raised all of 2020, putting the country on track for a record year.”

The team at Sifted publish this list every year, it is great to see the Irish Startup ecosystem recognised around the world. “It’s a mixture of the big and the small, the well known and the under the radar. But all are making waves. Keep reading below and stay informed about Europe’s new economy!”

ApisProtect may not be the biggest Irish startups, but it’s in an exciting field (much beloved by Sifted) of bee-tech. Founded in 2017, ApisProtect develops internet-connected beehive sensors and has raised more money than any bee-tech business in the world.
