Last November City Beach Software participating in Tech23, a pitching competition for start ups. It brings together investors, entrepreneurs and innovators from across Australian enterprise, government and industry sectors. 23 start ups have 5 minutes to present their business followed by a Q&A from experts on the panels.
It was a really interesting day with participants coming from all kinds of businesses; from imaging of water drains, getting 3D printers into schools and applying the internet of things to swimming pools.
We were thrilled to came away with 2 major awards:
- The Elevate 61 fast track award; This award will help enable City Beach to fast track the company into the United States and beyond which includes workshops, international mentorship and more. We also have the opportunity to join the 10 day mission to Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City in May.
- Paypal Enabling Choice: anytime, anywhere on any device – this was a $5k cash prize awarded to a company that offers merchants or consumers choice, flexibility, convenience and security.
