Caroline Dunlea Claims Women in Tech Entrepreneur Award

By David Brett,

On October 10th, Dublin Tech Summit hosted the second annual Women in Tech awards at the RDS Dublin. The Women in Tech awards highlight the importance of diversity in the workplace, focus on narrowing the gender gap and also recognise the achievements of women working to drive IT excellence, innovation, leadership and success in the tech industry. This year the audience consisted of over 400 high-level execs, VIP’s & government officials. The event contained 14 different categories and 2 special recognition awards including the Female Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

Caroline Dunlea was named Entrepreneur of the Year at the prestigious awards. We are a 4-year-old Independent Digital Marketing Agency which has been listed as a finalist in the Google Premier Partner awards for the last 2 years running. This means that Core Optimisation is recognised as being in the top 5% of Google Partner agencies in EMEA. Caroline won the award in a tough category beating some of Ireland’s biggest female entrepreneurs to take home the award, here’s what she had to say about this achievement:


“I am very honoured to have received the Entrepreneur Award and it means so much to me as a business owner and also represents the dedication and commitment of an entire team’s drive for success. What an incredible event with so many amazing and inspirational women across so many sectors. Thank you to Dublin Tech Summit for organizing such a memorable evening”
