If you’ve been squirreling away in your shed, office or backyard creating and innovating, we want to hear your story.

Previous winners have included nanofibre manufacturers Revolution Fibres, and Vend with their cloud point-of-sale system. Vend have since grown a customer base of 6,500 in over 100 countries.
