Launching today is a new online resource directory for tech companies entering the US market. TechResources.us provides Irish technology companies doing business in the US with trusted and up-to-date information and connections to essential in-market resources, services and supports. These include accelerators, professional services providers, networking groups, investors, co-working spaces, conferences, online resources and academic research centres.
At the launch Nick Marmion, Head of Software with Enterprise Ireland’s Americas team said:
It can be challenging for Irish companies to find relevant and trusted resources using an online search so we’re offering clients this tailored directory as a starting point. The aim of the directory is to help Irish companies to understand and connect with the market before they even leave Ireland.
From there, Enterprise Ireland’s team in America can help clients to hone their market entry strategy and introduce them to the decision makers and relationships they’ll need to accelerate their growth over time”.
The directory was developed by MarketSprint, a market entry consulting firm based in New York and has been customised specifically to the needs of Irish technology exporters.
There are currently over 1,600 qualified resources in the TechResources directory and users can search by location, vertical market or resource type and refine their search using keywords. Directory entries are enhanced with one-click connections to key people or communities via Linkedin, Twitter, phone or email.
In addition to offering clients quick access to market knowledge, the TechResources directory encourages Irish tech companies to share their knowledge and expertise with each other.
As Nick explains:
Clients can use the directory to share their own favourite US resources, and they’ll get credit for doing so. This is an opportunity to create a community of Irish knowledge around the practical resources needed for US market entry.
Access to the directory requires a sponsor code. To get yours please email Request@TechResources.US using your company email address.
Enterprise Ireland, a government organization responsible for the development and growth of Irish enterprises in world markets, wants to see technology companies from the Emerald Isle make it onto the global stage.

Headway Software Releases Structure101 & Restructure101 for Microsoft .NET Developers
The Structure101 product set used by thousands of Java and C/C++ developers to disentangle, define, and enforce their software architecture is now available for Microsoft Visual Studio developers.
Microsoft WPC, Los Angeles, CA, July 12, 2011
Headway Software today announced the General Availability release of the full family of Structure101 development tools for the Microsoft .NET platform. The tools that have been available to Java and C/C++ developers for over 4 years have been adapted by the company so that Visual Studio development teams can now also disentangle, define and enforce their software architecture.
Restructure101 for .NET is designed to allow software architects delve into structural problems and to explore solutions by directly manipulating a model of the codebase.
Structure101 for .NET supports the creation of a visual architecture specification that can be communicated to the team through a Visual Studio plug-in, which also raises an error when the developer makes a change to the code that violates the dependency rules.
Structure101 Build for .NET guarantees the integrity of the architecture at build time.
“This move is in response to requests from our existing customer base”, said Headways CEO Chris Chedgey, “the number and size of Microsoft .NET projects within ‘Java shops’ is increasing, and those teams are looking for the same architectural control enjoyed by their Java colleagues across the corridor”.
