Check out this email (text below) one of our PS12 teams got from the Irish Government today.
For the whole PS12 program we had exactly zero NSW or Commonwealth Department reps visit or reach out directly to any of our teams.
A perfect example of the difference between those governments that get the importance of tech entrepreneurship to their economy and those that don’t.
