Irish entrepreneur, Ciara Donlon, founder and CEO of medical device company THEYA Healthcare has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2017 Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards.

Ciara is the only Irish entrepreneur shortlisted for the European Award category alongside an entrepreneur from Russia and an entrepreneur from the UK.

The Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards are an international business plan competition created in 2006 to identify, support and encourage projects by women entrepreneurs. The initiative aims to encourage inspirational women entrepreneurs worldwide to solve contemporary global challenges.

THEYA Healthcare, which was formally launched by Ciara Donlon in 2015, designs and manufactures healthcare garments. The company’s flagship post-surgery lingerie range, designed primarily for use by breast cancer patients, retails across Ireland, the UK and has also been launched in Europe and Canada.

THEYA Healthcare uses a fabric mix made from OEKO-TEX bamboo, which is ideal for post-operative products as it is anti-bacterial, thermally regulating, 59% more absorbent than cotton and extremely soft thus helps reduce skin irritation.  THEYA Healthcare, headquartered at NovaUCD, is an Enterprise Ireland high potential start-up (HPSU) client company.

“It’s a huge honour to have been chosen by Cartier as one of the 3 European finalists for such a prestigious worldwide award.,” Donlon said. “I set up THEYA Healthcare because I wanted to help women undergoing breast cancer treatment feel better about themselves and heal faster, for that to be acknowledged by an organisation like Cartier means a lot. Hopefully more women who can benefit from our products will now have a chance to access them.”

Ciara Donlon has been shortlisted in the2017 Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards, Europe category alongside Marina Ross, CEO, Nanobarrier (Russia) and Lise Pape, CEO, Walk with Life (UK).

The winners of the 2017 Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards will be announced at the Awards Week and Ceremony which takes place in Singapore from 8-13 April.
