Atlantic Bridge has been part of the suite of new funds that our plans have helped to deliver, and I have seen first-hand how the previous funds have been successful in supporting high-potential fast-growing Irish companies to expand. I am delighted to welcome this important new fund, and I wish Brian and the team every success”.
