Look Who’s Charging won the CeBIT Australia 2017 PitchFest competition in Sydney last week, which featured 10 creative start-ups aiming to solve real-life problems.
Each start-up had five minutes to make its pitch, and then faced five minutes of Q&A questioning from three judges.
A validation of hard work
“It’s validation,” said Look Who’s Charging co-founder Nicole Grover. “When you start a business you wonder whether other people see the same problem that we saw, so it’s wonderful in that sense.”
She made her winning pitch to a panel of judges comprising Maureen Murphy, commercialisation adviser at Accelerating Commercialisation, Raj Dalal, founder and principal at BigInsights, and James Cameron, partner at AirTree Ventures.
Announcing the winner, Cameron said the judges really liked the product. “The ability that this start-up has shown to penetrate enterprises at the highest level is very impressive,” he said.
