Hurrah! We scooped top prize at the European Business & Innovation Centre (EBN) Award, announced at a major conference in Finland last Friday.
The Kauffman FastTrac META Group European Entrepreneurs Award (phew!) is an initiative aimed at EU entrepreneurs who have recently established a high-growth potential start-up. The scope of the prize is to give relevance and support to the “best in class”, who can inspire the next generation of young entrepreneurs. The Kaufmann FastTrac program has served more than 300,000 entrepreneurs since 1993.
For this award, entrepreneurs from all over Europe were vetted by an international selection committee composed of leading figures from the academic, business and investor communities. We were one of 3 companies to make the final shortlist.
On Friday, Paul and Tom travelled to Finland to pitch to an audience of 500+ delegates at the 21st European Business & Innovation Centre Network (EBN) Congress in Finland. And we won!
We’re thrilled and honoured to win this award. It’s another step on this amazing journey that we’re on. Plus we got to go to Finland – an amazing country! Thanks to the selection committee for choosing us, and thanks also to WESTBIC, The Galway County & City Enterprise Board and Enterprise Ireland for all their help & support along the way.
