It was an exciting week for Trezeo, being announced as winners of NDRC’s investor day, exhibiting at the Uprise Festival as well as being shortlisted in Fintech 20 Ireland.
Tuesday started with an investor showcase where each business involved in NDRC’s accelerator programme got the opportunity to pitch their proposal to investors as they viewed the different companies. There was an electric atmosphere as the companies were finally getting the chance to showcase all of their hard work over the last number of months to Dublin’s vibrant startup community.
After the showcase, the companies pitched to a Panel that consisted of investors from Draper Espirit, Delta Partners, Frontline Ventures and the CEO of the NDRC. Garrett Cassidy the CEO of Trezeo was up second last to pitch. Highlighting the problems self-employed and gig-economy workers have currently with crippling uncertainty and volatility surrounding pay and how Trezeo is going to provide a solution to the problems faced through its access to a regular payment and to top-up in the case of emergencies meant that Trezeo secured top prize at NDRC’s prestigious event.
