As part of the SingularityU Australia Global Impact Challenge, we held a two-day Bootcamp at the Sydney School of Entrepreneurship. Our cohort worked on pitch decks and presentation techniques. They worked hard and fast, with commitment and determination.

Newcastle entrepreneurs Chad Ramage, founder Accessibility in the City, Declan Edwards, founder BU Coaching, and Sahil Harriram, co-founder and CEO Elite Robotics, were part of the group. It was awesome having our city so well represented.

Just as incredible, was the spirit of collaboration that existed amongst our cohort, who were competing for the same prize. We dubbed this co-opetative, By the end of the weekend our entrepreneurs were helping each other in master-mind sessions, with heart-felt encouragement, and honest and helpful evaluations.

And at the Global Impact Challenge grand final at La Trobe University in Melbourne last Wednesday, our cohort allayed each other’s nerves and cheered each other on. And that made our SingularityU team winners. 

As with any competition, there is only one first prize. Marine Futures Lab are on their way, in April, to Denmark and Silicon Valley. And when the announcement was made, the entire cohort cheered! Loudly.

Marine Futures Lab are in the business of counting fish! Why? Because fish make up 60% of our food supply. And we are fishing-out our oceans. Why did they win? Because according to the judging panel, the impact of their business will be fast and global.

Judge Jason Bender, Head of Innovation at Deloitte, summed it up with these words, “What gets measured can be valued. What is of value must be protected”.
 

What gets measured can be valued. What is of value must be protected.

What gets measured can be valued. What is of value must be protected.
