Medical devices to prevent UTIs, a cashless taxi app, an online car service booking system and a games company were the big winners at the 2018 LIT New Frontiers Start-up Awards held this week.

Nine business leaders from the acclaimed New Frontiers programme showcased their start-up companies at a ceremony in the Millennium Theatre at LIT on Tuesday (June 19, 2018.)
