Weploy named winner of The Next Big Innovation
RiverPitch , a TV series designed to track down Australia’s latest and best tech developments, has named Melbourne-based, Weploy , the winner of the The Next Big Innovation.
In a strong field of 24 entrepreneurs Weploy, an online platform connecting businesses with pre- screened staff, was named the winner for its advanced and easy-to-use design.
The RiverPitch series, aired on the Your Money Channel, is inspired by River City Labs’ quarterly event joining pre-screened start-ups and investors.
The winner received a $20,000 cash prize and the opportunity to attend London Tech Week. “Winning RiverPitch means so much more than just a prize,” Weploy CEO Tony Wu said. “Being able to attend London Tech Week with the support of the River City Labs group behind us will help us with our ambitious growth plans.
“The calibre of the other incredible contestants in this show makes this win feel that much more special too."
As part of the series, Wu spent eight weeks being mentored by industry leader Sheona Devin, Executive Director at VIANT Group.
Once making it past the first round, contestants had to go through a second round of judging from ACS President Yohan Ramasundara, ACS CEO Andrew Johnson and COO of HashChing, Siobhan Hayden.
