Nicola Mitchell, chief executive of Dublin-based off-patent agrochemical manufacturer Life Scientific, has won the highly prestigious and acclaimed Irish national 2020 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award. She will go forward to the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in Monte Carlo in June 2021.
“We are facing a world where the growing population needs feeding alongside a decrease in the availability of good arable land,” says Ms Mitchell. “We simply need to be producing more efficiently from what we have – which is exactly what Life Scientific is doing.
“It is surreal to have won this award. I couldn’t do any of it without the fantastic team at Life Scientific and I cannot wait to share this with them.”
