Ambr Eyewear co-founder Daniel Nugent was ‘over the moon’ after taking home the top prize, sponsored by William Fry.

Founded by Daniel Nugent and Sacha Cahill, Ambr Eyewear produces glasses with lenses that filter the blue light streaming out of digital devices, helping to alleviate common problems such as eye strain, irritation and tiredness.

A judging panel saw potential in the early-stage start-up at the annual Enterprise Ireland New Frontiers showcase from the Technological University Dublin Hothouse and the Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology.

Finn Murphy, investor at Frontline Ventures and judging panel chair, declared the New Frontiers class of 2018 to be “incredible” and commended both the quality of the companies and entrepreneurs participating in the programme.
