Last year Startup News ran a quick Startup News Awards at our only event at Freo’s ThinkLab co-working space.

We were back this year, at the newly upgraded ‘Freo Startup Fest‘, held at Little Creatures last Thursday, as part of this year’s West Tech Fest. Co-organisers Rob Nathan and Paula Taylor had put together a fantastic event, which started with a panel discussion with 4 eastern states’ VCs, then an Innovation Bay pitch event followed by Andrew Outhwaite’s ‘For Blue’ report and panel discussion.

As the sun set over the Fremantle harbour, five awards were handed out by our Startup News sponsors: JTSI, Curtin University, BDO, Spacecubed and Wrays.

The winners were:

The event finished with the Blockchain Blues Band playing in their usual immutable, unhackable – and loud! – style.
