Letterkenny, Co. Donegal Ireland (PressExposure) November 11, 2008 -- Nvolve limited, a Letterkenny based firm who specialise in learning and software technologies and NW Aluminium from Kilmacrennan have been shortlisted in National competitions which acknowledge business acumen within Donegal.

Earlier this year Nvolve also win the Innovation Award at the Donegal County Enterprise Awards 2008 which is a true testament of their ability to succeed.
No stranger to winning entrepreneurship Awards, NW Aluminium was the overall winner in the 2008 Donegal Enterprise Awards and is shortlisted for the National Awards run by Enterprise Boards in Ireland. Despite NW Aluminium main market being in the construction industry, which has vastly deteriorated in the last 6 months, this company is defying this trend and is steadily growing. Michael Tunney, CEO, Donegal County Enterprise Board says, "Once again Donegal entrepreneurs are showing their skills to spot a growing niche and their ability to deliver a product to fill it. Both these businesses reflect innovative approached in traditional and technology industries, proving that Donegal is a viable location. We are very pleased that NW Aluminium is shortlisted in the National Enterprise Award. Congratulations to Nvolve on their win in the Shell LiveWIRE Awards."
These companies represent a tradition of determination, creativity and drive within Donegal to take forward their own personal vision and to make it work no matter what challenges are placed in front of them.
