Castlebar Business Set For National Enterprise Awards Final

Date: 17-05-2024

A cyber intelligence company will represent Mayo at the National Enterprise Awards next week.

Cytidel will compete at the prestigious awards on Thursday 23rd May in the Round Room at the Mansion House in Dublin.

Cytidel is a cyber intelligence and risk prioritisation platform, enabling customers to automate identification of the vulnerabilities most likely to lead to a security breach, and prioritise the fixes necessary to prevent them. This reduces breaches by up to 80% with half the effort.

Last year’s National Enterprise Awards was won by Mayo business Advanced Cosmetics, supported by Local Enterprise Office Mayo.  The Ballina based company was set up by Noreen Hackett in 2018. They have achieved significant success, securing contracts with some of the biggest brand names in the cosmetics industry.

This year the finalists cover a range of sectors and industries from transformational digitization software (DreamDev Technologies) and reduced mobility booking systems (PRM Assist) to luxury handmade chocolates (GrĂ¡ Chocolates) and hand-crafted natural soap (The Black Stuff). 

With Ireland’s success on the global film stage continuing the finalists also include a film production company that helped give Paul Mescal his break (Harp Media) and a prop and set design company who are working with some of the biggest international productions in Ireland providing bespoke props and set materials (MonarĂº).

JOHN MAGEE, LOCAL ENTERPRISE OFFICE MAYO; “The National Enterprise Awards serve to highlight the very best businesses. The finalists will no doubt produce businesses destined for international success. These businesses have excelled in their areas and have the potential to follow in the footsteps of previous winners to become successful global companies”.

The Finalists compete for a prize fund of €50,000 and along with an overall National Enterprise of the Year winner there are categories for Best Start-Up, Best Export Business, an Innovation Award, a One-to-Watch Award, and a Sustainability Award. There is also an Outstanding Achievement award for a business that started with their Local Enterprise Office and has gone on to achieve international growth with the assistance of Enterprise Ireland.
