    I'm looking to find a list of Ireland's top 100 entrepreneurs as part of research for my dissertation (specifically looking at the impact of third level education).


    "Irish Entrepreneur are delighted to present The Republic's 100 self - made men and women for 2009 which was published in the IRISH TIMES of Friday, Jan 30th." www.irishentrepreneur.com

    Anybody know where I can access it?

    Thanks

    Check out this link for past winners of the Ernest and Young award. Maybe someone with a copy of the paper might post up the list, I can't find it on the net

    Thanks Axwell, unfortunately I had already tried the Irish Times archive and nothing came up. I'm guessing this is because it was a supplement of the paper.


    @ enviro: thanks for the link, I'd already looked into the EOY awards but because I'm looking to find entrepreneur's educational info, I thought this top 100 list would be easier to find info on.

    Ilac Centre library. Business Desk. They keep 6 months of irish times in print, the rest on microfilm.

    I'd suggest looking for a more credible source than the Irish Entrepreneur if its for something serious like a dissertation. Maybe go to your local library and get the Original Irish times top 100 list which was in the 30/1/09 issue.

    Thats what he is looking for, the quote he gave was a reference to the Irish times top 100 list from the Irish Entrepreneur.

    Wont it be in this months Irish Entrepreneur magazine? It will probably give you a much more detailed breakdown of who they are and what they do/did than the list in the Times.

    Yeah I just presumed that the supplement gave a profile on each entrepreneur as it was the whole magazine that came free with the paper, but this might not be the case.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 27 ✭✭✭ borninlesotho


    I just got the paper in the college library for Jan 30th 2009 but there is no mention of entrepreneurs in the main paper/business supplement, and there is no supplemental magazine.

    I don't think this was even published now. Also Ernst & Young told me they don't have any details of educational info for the finalists.
