Two Cork men are on their way to Monaco this week to compete for the 19th EY World Entrepreneur of the Year.

Founders of software company Teamwork and winners of the 2018 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Ireland, Daniel Mackey and Peter Coppinger will join 47 competitors from around the world all hoping to secure the world title.

The Cork businessmen will also be inducted into the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year Hall of Fame, joining more than 700 previous finalists of the event since 2001.

Teamwork is a self-funded SaaS (software as a service) company headquartered in Cork city which has been in business for over 11 years. The company was founded in 2007 and currently has 24,000 paying customers with 240 staff working across 18 countries.

Kevin McLoughlin, Partner Lead for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year programme in Ireland, said: “Each year, EY World Entrepreneur of the Year recognises the highest calibre of entrepreneurs from around the globe who are leading the charge and breaking the mould across a huge number of industries and sectors.

“It is fantastic to see our own home-grown entrepreneurial talent competing on the world stage. Teamwork is a company that is flourishing into a major global success story from its Cork headquarters. Daniel and Peter are wonderful ambassadors for the Irish entrepreneurial community and we’re all extremely proud of their achievements to date.”

The overall winner will be chosen by an independent judging panel of distinguished former EY Entrepreneur of the Year winners and other leading entrepreneurs from around the world.

The winner will be announced at a ceremony in Monaco on Saturday evening.
