Kinsealy company Cyberprism among awards finalists
The Dublin region has a very strong track record in innovation and that has been borne out once again this year with over half of the nominations for the country's leading innovation awards coming from the capital.
The eight Dublin finalists which includes a company bases in Kinsealy, for The Irish Times Innovation Awards are; Cambrist and Cyberprism (nominated in IT and Fintech), Food Marble and Nuritas (nominated in Life sciences and Healthcare), Buymie, Auranta and Tech Works (nominated in New Frontiers) and Vita (nominated in Sustainability).
For the Awards, three finalists are nominated in five different categories with the category victors winning a €10,000 communications package. Dublin is guaranteed a winner in the New Frontiers category as all three finalists hail from the capital.
Category winners go forward to compete for the overall Innovation of the Year Award and a top prize of a €150,000 communications package and a scholarship for two business courses at UCD Business School commencing in 2020.
This year marks the tenth year of the Awards which were established to showcase and reward excellence in innovation across a range of products and services. Sponsors include Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, Skillnet Ireland, KPMG and UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School.
The winners will be announced at a high-profile awards ceremony at the RDS in Dublin on November 5.
Cyberprism from Kinsealy have been nominated in the IT and Fintech sector.
Cyberprism has developed an online solution, incorporating AI, which can provide firms with a 'cyber risk rating' score.
Good luck to the local company in the final.
