Stories of Growth are the inspirational accounts of the entrepreneurs and business leaders in the BGF portfolio, past and present. In these interviews, we explore the mindset of Irish business founders, revealing the challenges, setbacks and successes that made them who they are today.

Hear stories from Eoin Keary, CEO of technology company Edgescan, Amanda Torrens, Founder and former CEO of healthcare company Brindley Healthcare, and Patrick Byrnes, CEO of specialist manufacturers Croom Precision Medical.

From starting small to building leading businesses in each of their sectors, our Irish entrepreneurs share what it really takes to grow a successful company.

If I were giving advice to anyone that wants to become a CEO – in the healthcare business, for example – you need to be resilient, you need to be grounded and you need to have an ability and a skill to support others. Never forget your base platform and your team will do the rest.
