In advance of this year’s eir Elevation Awards, there will be an evening networking event on September 20th at HubSpot’s Silicon Docks HQ.
Taking place on November 4th in The Marker Hotel, the eir Elevation Awards is a uniquely designed awards programme which seeks to celebrate Ireland’s fastest-growing companies.
Open to all companies 15 years old or younger, the awards is an opportunity to reward the success and ingenuity of Irish businesses.
Placing a spotlight on innovation, international scalability, differentiation and strategic investment, entrants are judged and awarded based on their achievements in these areas.
Fast-growing companies have become an integral part of the Irish business community in recent years, shaping the evolution of start-ups and SMEs in Ireland. Honouring this industry advancement, 100 of the fastest growing companies were been featured in a bespoke edition of Business & Finance. The list can be seen here.
Winners at last year’s inaugural showcase included Voxpro, Foodcloud and Vizor.
