According to South East BIC, the standard and quality of the applicants was “exceptional”, making it a difficult job to shortlist to three.

Three start-ups FineDeeds (Tipperary), HConnect (Wexford) and SmartXAssistant (Wexford) then pitched in front of the judges and a packed audience. Judges were Keith Brock from Enterprise Ireland, Niamh Sterling from HBAN (Halo Business Angel Network) Niall McEvoy from Elkstone and Jacqui Gaule from Waterford LEO, representing the Local Enterprise Office in Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford and Wexford who sponsored the competition.

The three pitches along with a lively Q&A from the judges resulted in the prize of €5,000 going to David Ganly, CEO of Wexford company hConnect.
