NFTE Alumni Thomas Curtin and Dylan Moloney with their business (The Kone Kollectors ) have been successful in their application to New Frontiers.
The Kone Kollectors won the NFTE International competition in 2018 and represented Ireland in New York receiving their global NFTE award. Since then the two boys have been continuing to work on their business and progressing to the next stages. They have had many achievements along the way with winning the opportunity to represent Ireland once more at the NFTE Alumni Investor Forum in 2021 and have also been working with ActionCOACH Ireland to support them to the next level.
