Irish Telecoms Software Firm Openet is European ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’
September 25, 2013 - Aleks
Irish network operator software vendor Openet has been named Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2013 Tech Growth Summit in Berlin, Germany. The event, held last night, was run by the Swiss-born Tech Tour to put the spotlight on innovative technology trailblazers in Europe. Joe Hogan, Openet founder and CTO, and Niall Norton, CEO, accepted the award on behalf of the Dublin-headquartered firm last night.
This is the eighth year that Tech Tour has run the awards to put the spotlight on innovative and emerging technology companies from around Europe that are making an impact, both in terms of disrupting industries and empowering society. Tech Tour comprises technology influences in the technology industry.
Past winners in the Entrepreneur category have included Betfair, MySQL, and Wonga.
And last night's win for Openet was apparently the first time that an indigenous Irish company has been named as an overall winner in the entrepreneurship category of these particular awards.
