EY Names Kateeva's Co-Founder, President and COO, Dr. Conor Madigan, Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award Finalist in Northern California

NEWARK, CA--(Marketwired - May 18, 2017) - This week, EY announced that Kateeva's Co-Founder, President and COO, Dr. Conor Madigan, is a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in Northern California.

Now in its 31st year, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Madigan was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a gala event on June 23rd in San Jose, California. The complete list of finalists can be found here.

"It's a privilege to be recognized with this group of talented entrepreneurs," said Madigan. "They're innovating in myriad ways, while building strong businesses and creating jobs. Although the award honors the individuals behind the companies, our achievements would be impossible without the dedicated teams that support our visions. At Kateeva, I'm fortunate to work alongside exceptional people that share my commitment to building a Silicon Valley science-based company that provides advanced process technology to global manufacturing leaders. EY's prestigious award is a tribute to their efforts as well."

Founded in 2008, Kateeva developed a breakthrough inkjet printing manufacturing equipment solution to mass produce Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) displays. OLED is the display technology behind today's most exciting consumer devices. OLED displays were first deployed in smartphones to provide a more vivid and immersive user experience. Now, the technology is being used to enable a new class of wafer-thin and feather-light devices that will bend, fold and even roll. Kateeva manufactures its customized YIELDjet™ inkjet systems at its newly expanded 150,000 sq.ft. global headquarters in Newark, Calif. Typical products measure 2500 sq.ft. in footprint, and contain thousands of precision parts. Today, the company's YIELDjet FLEX system is the global market leader for flexible OLED mass production.

The EY awards program recognizes business leaders in over 145 cities and more than 60 countries throughout the world.
