Let us start with a big THANK YOU to all applicants. We are grateful for the time and efforts you invested into applying for the inaugural Create @ Alibaba Cloud Startup Contest.
We received stellar applications from startups across Australia and New Zealand. From education to IOT and fintech – we had a diverse representation of startups across all industries and regions.
With the help of our selection committee (and after many discussions), we were able to narrow the list of finalists down to 8 startups.
Unfortunately, that meant we had to notify a number of superb startups that they had not made the finals. We would like to stress again that this is no reflection whatsoever on the quality or potential of the startups that were not nominated.
Finalists for the 2017 A/NZ CACS Contest
In no particular order:
- Parent Paperwork
- The Safety Compass
- Equal Reality
The finalist will pitch on Friday evening, September 22nd at Haymarket HQ, Sydney. The two winners will win a trip to China, Alibaba Cloud Credits and free coworking space at Haymarket HQ.
We look forward to seeing many of you on the night. Please RSVP here to secure your ticket.
