Poppulo CEO Andrew O’Shaughnessy shortlisted for prestigious Entrepreneur Of The Year awards

Poppulo CEO Andrew O’Shaughnessy has been shortlisted for the prestigious 2020 EY Entrepreneur of the Year awards.

Previous winners include Stripe founders Patrick and John Collison.

O’Shaughnessy is one of 24 finalists selected from 100 entrepreneurs across three categories. The Poppulo founder has been shortlisted in the international category

Now in its 23rd year, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year awards program works to recognize, promote, and build a supportive community around Ireland’s high-growth entrepreneurs.

The shortlist selection panel was chaired by 2006 winner Anne Heraty, chief executive of CPL Resources.

“This year has been a challenging one so far for many businesses but we know that if there is one group that will rise to that challenge, it’s our island’s entrepreneurs,” said Roger Wallace, EY partner lead for the awards. “This year we’ve seen lots of newer, cutting edge tech and life sciences businesses nominated, as well as more established and traditional players.”

The 24 shortlisted will vie for the title of EY Entrepreneur of the Year with the winner to be announced in November.

Other finalists in the international category are: Pat Lucey of Aspira; Rodney Lowry of Lowe Rental Ltd; Tim Houstoun of Global Shares; Conor O’Loughlin of Glofox; Nicola Mitchel of Life Scientific; Andrew Mackin of Mackin; and Cathal Friel of Open Orphan.
