UTV Ireland to broadcast Entrepreneur of the Year TV series
UTV Ireland has announced it will broadcast the EY Entrepreneur of the Year series this autumn.
Beginning in September, the series will profile the 2015 EOY finalists who have displayed exceptional entrepreneurial skills and business acumen in recent years in Ireland and abroad.
The series will consist of five half-hour programmes examining entrepreneurship in Ireland and detailing the stories behind the finalists.
The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony at City West Hotel on October 22 and the event will be broadcast as a one-hour special.
The business awards programme is divided into three categories - Emerging, Industry, and International - with 8 finalists per category.
The 24 finalists were selected by an independent panel of judges made up of former EOY winners and chaired by businesswoman Anne Heraty, CEO of CPL Resources Plc.
