On Thursday night (8/12) we were humbled that we were not only one of Australia’s Top 100 Cool Company’s for 2016 but also to be named the Winner of the Cool Company Awards, Super New Startup category. We may not have won the overall Coolest Company but if you are going to loose that title then loosing to an awesome company is ok, we were proud to be recognised among the likes of “Thank You Water” who took out the overall “Coolest of Cool” award this year.
A bit more about the awards:
Cool Company Awards
Cool Companies manage to stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are organisations that aspire to be admired. They are trend-setters in attitude and action. Quite simply, they are… cool! The Cool Awards are in their 11th year and were created by James Tuckerman the founder of Anthill Magazine http://anthillonline.com/cool-company-awards/ the cool awards attract more nominations (over 700 this year) than the Telstra Small Business Awards.
Super New Startup Award (Startups):
Startups are almost always pretty cool… defying convention, challenging the status quo. However, they often don’t have the commercial ‘runs on the board’ to get noticed in the ‘cools’ when compared to more established players. This award will be presented to an organisation that is less than two years young. That way, you’ll be judged against other nascent ventures, rather than the ‘big boys and girls’.
