My name is Aiden Anderson-Barr, I’m from Ark Recycling. It’s an honour. It’s a great feeling that so many respected individuals from a range of different industries and organisations saw my business and the opportunities that it presents as meaningful and worthwhile for the Northern Territory.

After competing at Croc Pitch, what impact are you expecting?

It’s been a great day and I’ve met a lot of really interesting individuals. Regardless of the outcome of the actual pitch, I’ve been able to make some very meaningful connections with a range of industry professionals that will build lots of positive synergies for my business.
