Last week, Navi was awarded a top prize of $20,000 in cash at Medtech's Got Talent National's Final Gala. Additionally, Navi was also voted as the "People's Choice" start-up company - and consequently received a further $1,000 cash prize.
The winning pitch, delivered by Navi Co-founder Wei Sue, was presented at the National Finals as part of Australia's largest medical device accelerator program.
Eighteen of the best medical device startups from around Australia were selected to present at the black-tie event in Melbourne, Australia, in front of a panel of judges. Only the top 5 pitches at the event were awarded the $20,000 cash prize and granted entry into the next stage of the accelerator program.
Wei Sue stated she was thrilled with the win and “grateful for those that had helped Navi over the past few months.”
"Receiving the EY Award at the Medtech's Got Talent 2017 Gala Night greatly validates the progress we've made in the last few months. Special thanks go to our mentors at D+I, University of Melbourne and Melbourne Business School - as well as the overwhelming support we've received from others in the community.”
Following this win, Navi is now eligible to commence an intensive mentoring and training program that begins December 2017 which offers assistance in raising seed investment.
