(Investment secured €500): Adam Tunney, Sean Purcell, Michael English, Kai Murtagh – DTEP Digital Marketing.
(Investment secured €300): Alex Maguire – Subhub. An app. that allows you to monitor your subscriptions.
Matthew Collins (Vertical Wind Turbines) and Alex McGowan and James Harvey (find a personal trainer app.) came fourth and fifth place respectively.
