Entrepreneurs have ‘Trust’
Dermot McKenna SJ and John K. Guiney SJ were among over 100 guests at the annual Bolton Trust Awards ceremony (in conjunction with Hothouse and PcW) in the Price Waterhouse Cooper building, Docklands, Dublin on Thursday 3 March. The Bolton Trust is an independent, voluntary body, set up in the recessionary eighties to help budding entrepreneurs create new business enterprises in Ireland. Dermot McKenna was a founding member, along with staff of the Dublin Institute of Technology. A first prize of €10,000 was awarded to Gráinne Barron (2nd from left in photo), CEO of Foxframe Media. Her company has developed an easy-to-use and highly cost-effective package that allows businesses to ‘self-create’ professional company videos on-line. According to Dermot, “With the downturn in the economy the Bolton Trust is busier than ever and hoping to increase its enterprise activity”.
