This year’s runner-up at the Fingal Enterprise Awards, held in Fingal County Hall, was Baldoyle-based Corr Optical, Ireland’s only ISO-accredited advanced glazing laboratory providing frames and prescription lenses to independent opticians.
Kianda Technologies Ltd will now be competing against 30 other finalists from every local authority area for a share of the €40,000 prize fund as national judging gets underway in April. Categories this year include ‘Best Export Business,’ ‘Future Focus’ and ‘Innovation,’ in addition to eight regional awards. The Fingal Enterprise Awards took place as part of a very successful Local Enterprise Week programme of events.
Other high-profile events that took place during the week included a Digital Masterclass with Seanie Walsh hosted by PayPal in Ballycoolin, an Ethnic Entrepreneurs Expo in Balbriggan hosted by Empower Fingal and the Fingal Ethnic Network, the Dublin Region Agile Showcase hosted by Enterprise Ireland, a business networking breakfast with Fingal Dublin Chamber, a Productivity Seminar hosted by Balbriggan Chamber, and a business strategy seminar at IBM Ireland.
