Four companies in running for Dr Chris Coughlan award

Along with Westbic, we sponsor the annual Dr Chris Coughlan Award for Best Emerging Enterprise in Galway – and four companies are in the shortlist ahead of Friday night’s awards ceremony.

The award is just one of seven up for grabs in the Galway Chamber Business Awards in association with Shannon Group plc. The winners will be announced at Friday night’s Galway Chamber Gala Ball in the Galmont Hotel & Spa.

“We are delighted to promote emerging enterprises in Galway. New enterprises are the lifeblood of economic life in this region,” said Niamh Costello, General Manager, Galway Technology Centre.

The four nominees are All About Kombucha, CitySwift, Pálás and DigiTally.

“The late Dr Chris Coughlan was an industrial and cultural visionary in Galway. He contributed so much to the city, including here in Galway Technology Centre where he was a hugely influential figure,” added Niamh.

“Four excellent enterprises have been selected and the judges have a difficult job picking a winner.”

The UX Studio won the Dr Chris Coughlan award last year.
