The 24 finalists, including for the first time two Irish entrepreneurs living overseas looking to set up their businesses in Ireland, come from 17 different counties and a range of sectors including fashion, retail, food, technology and life sciences. The young Irish overseas were specifically targeted in this year’s initiative.
