BuyReply Tech23 Pitch

Last month I presented BuyReply (now ShopReply) at Tech23. Tech23 is a prestigious Australian startup event that is attended by the Australian startup community, investors and entrepreneurs. There are 23 startups selected from 150 applicants contesting for three awards and a number of other prizes.

This was the first pitch event I’d ever done so it was quite a challenge to sum up what ShopReply does in 5 minutes and present it in a simple and understandable manor. We ended up doing quite well and won four prizes including:

  • The “Peoples Choice” award – A nice shiny trophy and a Google Nexus 7
  • The Google encouragement prize – Lunch and mentoring session at Google Sydney
  • The PayPal creating opportunity together award – $5,000 cash
  • MYOB Online Innovation for Small Business Award - Two years free MYOB Premium Developer Partnership and marketing campaign (up to $5k in value) to MYOB’s 1 million+ SME customer base
