How Did Three Become One?

The idea for the Prepaid Card came about after their Business Teacher told them that they could enter a competition which would (if they won) secure them an iPhone 8 each.

Even though the girls initially thought that their product was not going to be successful, they stuck with it and the more they researched, the more they realised that there was no product like this in the Irish market. They had identified a gap in this market, which they felt their product could fill!

These young entrepreneurs said that they never thought that their idea would be launched into the Irish Market.
