Past participants and winners of The Ireland Funds Business Plan Competition have gone on to great things: Coindrum Lukas Decker, CEO (2012 inaugural winner) Coindrum provides self-service machines in airports that passengers use to convert unwanted coins into airport shopping vouchers. This solves the foreign coin inconvenience for travellers, increases the percentage of people that shop for retailers and speeds up security checks for airports. Artfetch Katie Tsouros, Co-founder/CEO (2013 first runner up) Artfetch is an ecommerce platform for emerging artists. Artfetch also offers a curated experience from the selection of artists to personal recommendations and service. In 2016 Artfetch was acquired by UK company Rise Art with Katie Tsouros staying on as brand marketing manager.
