Waterford, Ireland, 10th August 2011
Global Business Register Ltd. was today named as one of 24 high potential start-up companies through which 445 new jobs will be created, by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD. Making the announcement, Minister Bruton stated his desire to promote an ‘Irish innovation revolution’, and highlighted the role of companies like GBR in the forging of Ireland’s new, brighter economic future.
“If we are to rebuild the economy and create the jobs of the future in Ireland, we must not only continue to attract high-end multinational companies, but we must also crucially ensure that more high potential small businesses can establish and expand here”, he said.
Global Business Register was also cited by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation as an example of the companies which the government is seeking to support and promote.
“My plan to create an indigenous engine of economic growth will ensure that Government actions are directed towards ensuring that more companies like these can establish and grow and provide the basis for Ireland’s economic recovery”, continued the Minister.
A renewed reliance on innovation is a most promising development and certainly a familiar concept to GBR, as we strive to continually create ideas and solutions for an ever-changing world. We are proud to be part of the government’s strategy for a better Ireland, and of our continued position at the cutting-edge of global innovation.
Commenting on this announcement Ben Cronin, Managing Director of GBR said, “Our direct access to official company data has allowed GBR to develop a wide range of online identity products. In order to compete in the global market, products and services need to be innovative. At GBR we constantly drive new innovations that ultimately solve real problems. Support from Enterprise Ireland is critical to this process.”
GBR’s latest innovation is an online identity for website owners known as the Trust Passport™. Browsing the Web should not, we believe, be a confusing and dangerous minefield which leaves a person open to having their most personal details stolen. Trust Passport™ collates information in order to provide to the consumer a means to make an educated decision regarding with whom they do business on the web - Can I trust this website or not? Our development allows for instant verification of the website owner’s identity using globally-recognised and trusted data sources in real-time. It is identified by means of a smart icon, in the form of a fingerprint, placed on the website. Quite simply, this breakthrough provides the power of information and peace of mind; allowing consumers to concentrate solely on their desired product or service, free from the burden of doubt and worry that they are about to be defrauded.
