Speaking about her Wildcard win, Jenny said:

I am so happy, there are no words! I just wanted to say thanks to JOE and Her for running such an amazing competition.

"When you're a start up it feels like you’re running up a steep hill. It was such an emotional journey, the support was unbelievable.

"WOD Holidays gave us some run for our money and put up such a fight.

"I wish them the best of luck and want to say to others to keep pushing on and chin up.”

Jenny, and her company Topper Technology, will now join ten of the Irish Start-ups who have already been selected by a panel of judges.

The winner and two runners-up of the eight-week business launch pad will share a prize package of €250,000, with the overall winner receiving a direct €20,000 cash investment.
