Passionate about our business

Activate Capital was founded in 2015 to address the shortage of debt capital available for property development in the Irish market. Benefitting from strong financial backing from the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund ("ISIF") and KKR, to date we have committed more than €650m across 41 sites with capacity to deliver over 6,500 homes. We take pride in this achievement.

We share many ambitions with our customers:

Rebuilding activity in the Irish housing sector.

Delivering high quality, affordable homes at scale.

Driving success through long-term partnerships.

Pursuing a model of sustainable development.

Our Mission
