GALWAY FINALIST SCOOPS RUNNER UP TITLE AT IRELAND’S BEST YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR COMPETITION

 

Local Enterprise Office Galway’s finalist for the title of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur 2019, Elizabeth McGloughlin, has been named runner up in the Best Business Idea category in the Ireland's Best Young Entrepreneur competition.

Finalists from across Ireland gathered at Google HQ in Dublin at the weekend for the prestigious final.

The IBYE programme is run by the 31 Local Enterprise Offices and is funded by the Government of Ireland with the support of the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation and Enterprise Ireland.

30-year-old city resident Elizabeth is co-founder of city-based company Tympany Medical, which is designing and developing a novel combined access and visualisation device which will enable ear surgeons to ‘see around the corners’ of the ear canal.

This will allow surgeons to perform trans-canal ear surgery with a wide endoscopic view of the surgical site, thereby, avoiding unnecessary invasive surgery.
