Camara is delighted to be awarded the 2008 David Manley Emerging Entrepreneur Award, which in the words of Eirgen Pharma, last year’s overall winners “it must be regarded as the number one accolade for any emerging business in Ireland”. The award is aimed to give support to entrepreneurs in Irish society and Camara will receive mentoring and consultancy services worth over 80,000 euros’, Irish entrepreneur Domini Kemp presented the award to Cormac Lynch. The chairman of the panel of judges, Alfie Kane, said that “Camara creates Irish and third world jobs and helps empower the next generation in sub-Sahara African children. They have engineered a successful ‘end-to-end management process’ which ensures effective collection, restoration, delivery, installation and use of what would otherwise be a huge waste and cost if redundant computers were just recycled in the normal manner.” Camara would like to thank those involved in organising the David Manley Awards, the Judging Panel and the Sponsors. As well as being overall winner, Camara won the emerging Social Entrepeneur category, Galway based Arcana Productions won the Emerging Arts category and Slainte Technologies were the winners in the Emerging Business category.
