Tech start-up JUSTTIP has won the ‘Best New Tech Start-Up’ category at the Tech Excellence Awards, held at Dublin’s Royal Marine Hotel.
The Tech Excellence Awards recognise excellence in implementing tech solutions, the business of marketing, and implementing technology for business.
Founded in July 2021 by then 20-year-olds Ciara Walsh and James Fahy, JUSTTIP is now working with over 180 hospitality clients across Ireland and the UK, and the first sites went live in Las Vegas two months ago. The start-up’s Tech Excellence Awards win comes as the headcount at JUSTTIP has doubled in four months.

Speaking about the win, Walsh said, “This is a wonderful achievement for the whole team at JUSTTIP, and we are very grateful to everyone who has helped us to this point. This win is a substantial stepping stone towards our next period of growth, and we are motivated and determined to take JUSTTIP to even greater heights.”
Fahy said, “Covid decimated the hospitality industry, so Ciara and I founded JUSTTIP to ensure service workers across all sectors could get the rewards that they have so clearly earned and deserved. It was, and will remain so, the right thing to do.”
Fahy concluded, “This award win is a substantial endorsement of our technology, our team, and our values. Now we need to scale the business for growth to bring JUSTTIP to all those in society who need the service the most. We have only just begun – this is just the tip of the iceberg.”
