The Argus

Dundalk based cybersecurity software firm, Nova Leah, has been named 'Emerging Company of the Year' at the 2019 Technology Ireland in association with Ibec.

The gala awards were presented in Dublin's Mansion House last month. Founded by international cybersecurity expert and entrepreneur Dr. Anita Finnegan in 2015, Nova Leah has claimed three top tech awards so far in November.

The medical device cybersecurity company was also a winner at the Knowledge Transfer Impact and Export Industry Awards prior to being named 'Emerging Company of the Year'.

Nova Leah has scooped three different awards this month including 'High Potential Exporter of the Year' at the Export Industry Awards, 'Spinout Company of the Year' at the 2019 Knowledge Transfer Impact Awards and 'Emerging Company of the Year' at the Technology Ireland awards.

CEO and Founder of Nova Leah, Dr. Anita Finnegan, said: 'We are honoured and humbled by the recognition Nova Leah has garnered. It's a reflection of the hard work of our teams both in Europe and the US. As we continue our international cybersecurity focus, winning both the 'High Potential Exporter of the Year' and the 'Emerging Company of the Year' is hugely beneficial. We are immensely proud of our development from PhD research to substantial international growth. Winning the Knowledge Transfer Award for 'Spinout of the Year' is a great reminder of just how far we've come. These awards are not only motivating, they support our sales efforts, build industry recognition and help attract the very best talent to our teams.'

The Technology Ireland Awards, now in its 27th year, is organised by Technology Ireland, the Ibec group that represents the Irish tech industry. Nova Leah's CoFounder Fergal McCaffery was nominated for Outstanding Academic Achievement of the Year.
