Minister for Jobs Stuart Ayres is calling on NSW’s brightest startups to share their innovative ideas at Australia’s largest pitch competition for regional startups – the 2019 Jobs for NSW Regional Pitchfest.
New South Wales finalist 14-year-old Michael Nixon has won the first Australia Post Regional Pitchfest national title after pitching his innovative business idea, The Amazing Annoyatron, against seven other finalists at tonight’s gala final in his hometown of Wagga Wagga, NSW.
It has been a whirlwind few months. From planning out the concept of a national pitching competition at the end of last year to delivering events in 8 locations across Regional Australia... you could say that I am about out of puff...but not yet!
On the 29th of June, Australia’s largest inland non-capital city, Wagga Wagga in NSW, will play host to Regional PitchFest, the first ever competition specifically focused on rural-based tech entrepreneurs.
