Start-Up Lab Autumn 2021

7 Dec 2021

Start-Up Lab Autumn 2021 Winners Announced.

On Tuesday 7 December we hosted the Start-Up Lab Grand Pitch event and each participant had to do a 3minute pitch to an adjudication panel. The objective was to convince the panel that their idea is the “Best Idea In The World” by pitching a business model in a compelling way using the tips and tactics that was discussed over the last 5 weeks.

The programme which is run over six evenings is designed to help participants build and refine a robust business model for their business.

There were three awards presented on the evening:

  1. The Start-Up Lab Best Idea Prize was awarded to Duc Nguyen Huu and Devon O' Mahony founders of WeRead. 
  2. The Start-Up Lab Sustainable Impact Prize was awarded to Luke Decaux & team founders of MarketBox. 
  3. The Start-Up Lab Best Pitch Prize was awarded to Conor Dempsey founder of H1Maths. 

Well done to the award winners and to all the participants!
