Judges at the recent NDRC Investor Day 2017 said start-ups need to demonstrate a more global vision.

Real products that meet real market needs and that can scale globally were the hallmark of the latest tranche of NDRC start-ups.

That was the view of the various investors on Investor Day when Trezeo – creator of a platform that can provide income stability for the legions of gig economy workers out there – was selected as the overall winner.

The audience vote went to Izzy Wheels, headed by sisters Izzy and Ailbhe Keane from Galway.
