Pitch @ Palace – Australian National Final!

It has been somewhat challenging for me to put in to words how truly wonderful the PitchatPalace experience has been.

Despite my natural inclinations, brevity is perhaps appropriate, and to this end I would simply describe Pitch@Palace as an environment of such warmth, generosity of spirit, and genuine care for individuals and organisations, that one’s optimism and ambitions for the future cannot be anything else but buoyed! Our world’s future is so very bright.

 

 

To his HRH The Duke of York, Pitch@Palace is a true credit to you. It has been my absolute privilege to have had chance to participate in and now become part of this wonderful world changing community.

 

To Amanda Thirsk, Jane Ferguson, the broader Pitch team, and to Charlotte Tapp , I simply cannot thank each of you enough for being so incredibly helpful, kind, and generous of spirit throughout the entire program.

 

A sincere thank you to the Honourable Kim Beazley AC for opening your home for the event, and to your staff who ensured a fantastic evening. I would likely hazard a guess that I may very well be the first person to have brought a surfboard into Government House’s ballroom in its 130 year history!

 

 

To the incredible Murdoch University team of Romy Lawson, Matthew D.K. Evans, Jeremy Chetty, Melanie Molloy, and Susan Weary – congratulations on pulling together such a seamless series of events. Your efforts behind the scenes must have been nothing shy of gargantuan, and the results of such an outstanding event are testament to those that work tirelessly to make them so.

 

To the City of Perth, and John Fish, thank you for supporting such a wonderful initiative along with Australia’s vibrant startup community.

 

A huge thank you to my Elevator, Ben Berthon-Jones, who offered invaluable advice and guidance prior to both of my pitches.

 

To the three amazing and truly deserved winners who will represent Australia in the global final to be held at St James’ Palace, you are each simply incredible; you will each change the world; and you have each already done Australia very proud!

 

 

 

Paul AndersonOrthocell Ltd – medical technology that revolutionises nerve damage treatment and that gives people back their limbs but perhaps just as importantly; gives people back hope.

 

Chris Rhyss EdwardsSoldier.ly – An innovative wearable tech and community solution that monitors and supports veteran mental health and that actively works to prevent veteran suicide.

 

Michael TozerXceptional Testing– an inspiring technology and process that assists people with autism to not just find work, but to find roles where they can excel!

 

A special mention to the People’s Choice award winner – Hiren Savjiyani from Hike – an advanced POS software making retail easier.

 

To the entire Australian cohort of 42 outstanding entrepreneurs – wow! You are simply inspiring and Australia really is the lucky country to have such incredible people within its ranks!

 

And to the truly wonderful WA cohort who are each doing AMAZING things, my sincere thanks. It has been my absolute pleasure to not only be inspired by how each of you are revolutionising the world for the better, but to also now consider each of you friends.
