Annie Madden, co-founder of FenuHealth, a company that makes supplements for horses, has won Enterprise Ireland's 2022 Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
The University College Cork student was presented with the award at a ceremony at Trinity College Dublin today.
FenuHealth, which is based in Co Meath, produces powdered supplements that are added to feed to help prevent and resolve stomach problems in horses and ponies.
The business was built on work done by sisters Annie and Kate Madden as transition year students taking part in the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition.
FenuHealth was one of ten finalists at the awards and the team received €10,000 as part of the Enterprise Ireland student prize.
The Madden sisters will also receive mentoring from Enterprise Ireland to develop the commercial viability of their products.
This is the 41st year of Enterprise Ireland’s Student Entrepreneur Awards, which are open to all third level institutions across the country.
