Roger Wallace, partner lead for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ programme, said: “We received a record number of nominations for this year’s programme and the highest ever number of nominations for female entrepreneurs – which we are delighted to see.
“This year’s finalists represent a broad spectrum of industries, including technology, manufacturing, healthcare, hospitality, retail, consumer products, and engineering. They come from diverse backgrounds and communities across Ireland north and south, showcasing the depth of entrepreneurial spirit and talent running through the island.
“The theme for this year’s programme is ‘The Art of Entrepreneurship’. Both artists and entrepreneurs are creators, thinking differently and bringing new ideas and concepts which inspire and challenge.
“The EOY alumni group welcome and foster that spirit of innovation like no other, collectively impacting the ambition and culture of our island. I would like to extend a warm welcome to our 24 finalists into the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year community and I look forward to working with them closely over the coming months.”
