Congratulations to Pending.AI and Bevucation for taking out the prizes.
iAccelerate Demo Day is a cornerstone event where the community can engage with iAccelerate's innovative resident companies to learn more about what they are working on. For our resident companies it is an opportunity to exhibit their businesses to the community, investors, business leaders, media, the wider startup community and the general public.
On Friday 2nd November iAccelerate was pleased to co-host the 'Speaker Series – Encouraging Female Entrepreneurship' with the Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE) and Women NSW. We heard from 2017 NSW Business Woman of the Year Gina Field on her experiences of female entrepreneurship.
The first ever PitchX Final event was a huge success. 5 teams of UOW students competed against each other in a showcase of terrible ideas. Top prizes went to Morning Roaster and Socksess!
