Hatch backed by AIB – meet our winners

The brightest minds in tech will be in Dublin for Web Summit – buy your ticket now


If there’s ever been any doubt about the future of entrepreneurship in Ireland, then let that be put to bed now. With our new initiative, Hatch backed by AIB, we’ve uncovered some brilliant young minds, and we’re delighted to be welcoming them to Web Summit for a unique incubator experience across the 3 days of the event.

Fluffy is everyone’s favourite dog here at Web Summit HQ, and the students who entered Hatch were were tasked with a tricky dog-related challenge: make Fluffy famous. They used all their creative muscles and entrepreneurial flair in coming up with great ideas to impress us and AIB, and now we can reveal our worthy winners. First, take a look at 3 of the top video submissions:
