Gillian is an expert in data analysis and has worked in the industry for years prior to establishing her own company.

Gillian was one of three local entrepreneurs who represented Donegal in the regional finals of the Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur (IBYE) competition. The competition is co-ordinated by all 31 Local Enterprise Offices across Ireland and is open to entrepreneurs between ages 18 – 35 years in all business sectors.

There was a record number of entries for this year’s event. The Local Enterprise Office Donegal put local finalists through their paces at the end of last year in a rigorous judging process which included a weekend business bootcamp of training and mentoring in Gartan Outdoor Education and Training Centre.

All eyes will now be on Gillian for the National Finals on March 5th at the Google Headquarters in Dublin. A €100,000 investment Fund has been made available for the overall National Category Winners.
