EOY 2017 CEO Retreat

Finalists in this year’s EOY 10 month development programme will benefit from mentoring initiatives, executive education, and an international CEO Retreat to San Francisco, which will represent the largest unofficial trade mission specifically focused on fostering entrepreneurship.

As finalists in the programme, the entrepreneurs will join over 70 members of the EOY community for a week long CEO retreat to San Francisco in May. The retreat will include masterclasses with decision makers at the helm of San Francisco’s most successful start-ups and globally renowned brands as well as leading academics from Stanford University.

Commenting on the announcement, Kevin McLoughlin, Partner Lead for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ programme said:

“2017 is proving to be a year of disruptive change for companies, as we await the outcome of Brexit negotiations, and the potential impact of President Trump’s policies, coupled with ongoing innovation and technological disruption. This year’s finalists were chosen because they have demonstrated the ability to navigate change as business leaders, and as such, they represent the very best talent within Ireland’s entrepreneurial community today. We look forward to witnessing their journey on the programme and to supporting their growth and success now and into the future.”
