Binary Beer accepted into 4 month MassChallenge accelerator
Since iAccelerate residents Binary Beer (formerly Digital Home Brew) were shortlisted in the top 10 startups to represent Australia at the Mass Challenge in Boston for a 5 Day bootcamp, they have now progressed to the next round to compete for a share of a $3M prize pool.
The ten national finalists, including Binary Beer chosen at the Bridge to Mass Challenge Australia in November 2016, attended a five-day boot camp in Boston in February 2017.
Due to a strong result at the MassChallenge boot camp Binary Beer have been fast tracked to the semi-final round of applications for the greater 4 month MassChallenge program. In the MassChallenge program Binary Beer will be competing alongside 128 startups for a share of a $3M prize pool with zero equity taken.
Following on from the visit to Boston Binary Beer spent 14 days touring breweries and meeting with key players in the craft beer scene in Boston.
The news doesn’t stop there, upon landing back in Australia Binary Beer have hit the ground running and are organising a pilot run of their beer keg tracking system with the help of Five Barrel Brewing Company in Wollongong and the UOW SMART Infrastructure Facility.

About the MassChallenge
MassChallenge is open to startups across any industry and does not take equity from the startups they support – no strings attached. The MassChallenge uses a competition framework to facilitate our accelerator program – instead of an investment-style program. Experts from the startup community serve as MassChallenge judges. Prizes are awarded at the end of the MassChallenge accelerator, based on a final round of judging.
About Binary Beer
Binary Beer is ensuring the reliable supply of quality beer to bars and pubs. We’re developing smart kegs that tell brewers and bars how much beer is left, no matter where they are out in the field.
We take the guesswork out of inventory management to ensure that taps don’t run dry.
