OpenAI is growing its presence in Europe with the newest office in Dublin, Ireland. The company plans to grow a team this year in Ireland that will propel operations, trust and safety, go-to-market, security engineering, and legal work as part of the ongoing commitment to better serve the European market.
Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, said, “Ireland blends a talented workforce with support for innovation and responsible business growth. We’re excited for this partnership as we expand in Europe.”
The strength of Ireland’s tech and startup ecosystem across Dublin and cities like Cork, Galway, and Limerick has shown impressive growth and advancement.
The company is ready to collaborate with the government to support its National AI Strategy, as well as work with industry, startups, and researchers to understand priorities and ideas for advancing AI development and deployment.
OpenAI has taken the first steps to provide access to the technology and offer mentorship to Irish youth accelerator Patch, a non-profit that supports exceptional 16-21-year-olds by having them build and learn through their the entrepreneurial projects.
“IDA Ireland welcomes the decision by OpenAI to establish a European presence in Dublin. Ireland is a recognized hub for administrative, regulatory, and innovation activities for the world’s leading digital companies. OpenAI’s investment confirms this and endorses Ireland’s focus on building a flourishing AI ecosystem,” said Michael Lohan, CEO of IDA Ireland.
“In order for Ireland to benefit from AI, it is essential to ensure that we have a strong, supportive ecosystem in place and we believe that companies such as OpenAI operating in Ireland can help build on our foundation to support emerging AI research and innovation, and ensure our workforce is well prepared,” said Simon Coveney, Minister for Enterprise, Trade, and Employment.
