The second incarnation of the Bond Business Accelerator culminated with the inaugural Gold Coast Demo Day on Wednesday November 19th, an official event of Global Entrepreneurship Week. Our six startups presented along with the six startups from the SURF Accelerator and impressed all with their impressive pitches. The buzz surrounding the networking event was palpable and I heard many interesting conversations between startups and potential interested parties.
Service.com.au took out the $5,000 prize sponsored by the Bond University Faculty of Business while BattleFit won 12 months’ coworking space at Wotso’s Varsity Lakes location, sponsored by Wotso.
The event exceeded expectations and placed the Gold Coast squarely on the innovation map. Enomous thanks to the City of Gold Coast for funding the SURF Accelerator and Silicon Lakes for running it, and to the Faculty of Business for funding and running the Bond Business Accelerator.
Up and to the right!
