Gilbert Little

Telecoms pioneer Gilbert Little (65) earned around €57m in a sell-out of two text-messaging technology groups in the 1990s. The Dalkey man spread money around, investing in healthcare and communications.

Another big cheque came from the €100m sale of Aepona in 2013. Little has put money into innovative waste to energy group Scfi, which aims to make electricity from organic wastes, such as poo.
