On screen: the joy, the passion and the pain driving Ireland’s entrepreneurs

Launching September 25th, the new TV series charting the 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year follows a very personal journey to success

The magical thing about every successful business is that it all starts with one single idea. In the new six-part 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year (EOY) TV series (kicking off on TV3’s be3 on September 25th) the power of this single idea is unlocked. The series is built on stories that reveal the passion of real people, the entrepreneurs driving multi-million euro businesses and those who aren’t “long from the kitchen table where it all started.”

From whiskey to technology to frozen food, and everything in between, the TV series charts the 24 finalist’s journey until the final episode, when the winner of this prestigious title will be announced at a prestigious ceremony in October.

The series is a revealing behind-the-scenes look at these brands like Joe.ie, GoBus and Strong Roots and the stories behind their business, reflecting on the highs and lows that they have overcome. It’s the personal side of these entrepreneurs that shows that, while they are running successful businesses, they are still very ordinary people.
