What did you think about our Croc Pitch guest speakers and the insights they shared?
Jason Davis from HoldAccess, we pitched today. Yeah, I heard some guest speakers today who were from the government and spoke about commercialization, grants, and opportunities and as well as the Northern Territory, the investments into the Northern Territory, here with industries. It was awesome to hear and great to know that the Northern Territory is moving on innovation and it’s looking at growing the employment workforce and diversifying. These are really strong points that I picked up from some of the speakers this morning and I really see an opportunity there for separate commercialization grants with companies being something that’s going to help grow the regional economy at scale.
You made it to the finals, how do you feel?
Yeah, I did make it to the finals and yeah happy about that. Happy and excited to take it to the next round and see how we go. We’ve got something really valuable to the community and to the economy of the Northern Territory, but something even greater that’s going to create so much social benefit and social impact that any company investing is going to get so much from, and their workforce is going to also elevate their performance levels just because there’s value between both the enterprise and their workforce that hasn’t been there since forever. We’re changing that and we’re excited to present that in the next round.
