The Best Start Up/New Business award appeals to entrants who can show the success of their start up/new business. In particular, it focuses on the establishment success of a start-up within the last 2 years. Therefore, the judges looked for evidence of strategically planned growth. In addition, they looked for clear vision for the future and current measurable achievement.
“Kianda identified a need to make digitalisation simple for businesses. Also, they have developed key points of differentiation to make them stand out in a space that is cluttered with bigger competitors. Moreover, resilience and commitment secured them significant contracts with two large corporations in Ireland. And there is a strong plan in place for a sustainable future.” Judges from the competition said after announcing Kianda won Best Start up/New Business Award.
