Pitch for $1 Million started last Friday (Sept 31st), with the first event being held in Perth.

20 startups pitched throughout the day and made it near impossible to pick the winners.

 In the end ,The Noisy Guts Project, a project aimed at developing a device that records gut noises and helps doctors accurately diagnose gut disorders, took first place.

The Noisy Gut Project is run by researchers from The University Of Western Australia. The aim is to utilise ‘wearable technology’ and smartphone apps to record symptoms and get on top of IBD diagnosis’s before it gets out of control.

In second place was The Volte, a P2P marketplace allowing users to lend and borrow high end designer clothes. Then in third, Cellr, a wine cellar management system created to automate all elements of managing a wine program.

Getting Pitch Ready With The $1 Million Clinic

On a seperate stage, eight workshops were being held. Focusing on helping startups fix common pain points with running a business.

One in particular, was taught by Brendon Yell (Director of SendGrid). Who has sent over 500 million emails and hacked ShopFree.com to over 750,000 members, taught founders to use email to attract, convert and retain customers, with a ROI that’s better than any other media.

With 13 more Pitch for $1 Million events happening all over APAC, we’re excited to see more startups compete for the grand prize of $1 million investment from Right Click Capital.
