Its flagship HEAT product allows organisations whose activities are risky, remote or rare to train employees in a more authentic, memorable and measurable way.
Greg Swift, head of enterprise & economic development with Local Enterprise Office Dublin City, said: “For the last two decades, the National Enterprise Awards have celebrated home-grown success stories from every corner of Ireland, putting their achievements into the national spotlight.
“And at the 2020 National Enterprise Awards, we are delighted to be represented by VRAI, yet another home grown success story. VRAI exemplify innovation. The judges were particularly impressed by the calibre of international corporate clients they have secured in less than three years of operations.”
VRAI will compete at the National Awards against 30 other finalists from every local authority area for a share of the €40,000 prize fund.
