Win €20,000 Irish Start Up Competition – 2 Days To Go


So the competition only has 2 full days to go before the deadline on Monday at 5 for all entries to be submitted. I’ve been getting some brilliant entries via emails, comments, videos and other cool ways. The one thing I would say is that there is still lots of room to stand out from the crowd creatively. Text is great but with the volume of entries and short judging time it will be the cool quirky ones that stand out and probably get picked. I’ve no idea how I am going to judge all of these businesses because they are that good but I’m really excited about it all especially by the sheer passion that so many people are showing to win the prize.


People are finding all sorts of weird and wonderful ways to enter the competition. I’ve filed all the entries that have come in via comments, emails, videos, presentations etc to start judging them on Monday evening but here are a random selection of some of the entries to date. These are in no way ranking better than any other entires and are simply the first few I spotted to share here.
