Irish revenue based financing firm Wayflyer has been named as the top Irish startup on LinkedIn's 2022 Top Startups List for Ireland.

The list, which recognises the top ten most sought-after startups to work for in the country, reflects the Irish companies that have embraced innovation and the future of work.

It also spotlights startups successfully navigating the evolution of consumer and business needs.

The list is compiled based on the analysis of LinkedIn data scientists, which examine millions of actions generated by LinkedIn's two million members in Ireland across four pillars - employee growth, job interest, engagement with the company and its employees and the attraction of top talent.

Dublin-based Wayflyer achieved unicorn status earlier this year after its Series B funding round and has since gone onto raising $253m in debt financing from Credit Suisse.

The firm has grown its headcount to over 250 staff.

Sandrine Chauvin, International Executive Editor of LinkedIn News, said that this year's top Irish startups list is reflective of the disruptive forces that the pandemic brought about, combined with the innovative thinking that gave Ireland its reputation as the land of saints and scholars.

"The diverse range of industries covered by the list, ranging from medical devices and cybersecurity to drone delivery and activewear, reflects how Irish entrepreneurs are making a global impact," she added.
