Behold the judges for the night:

Richard Celm - Program Director @ StartupBootcamp

Megan Linton - Product Manager @ Nifty Grants, powered by PWC
Megan Linton is the Product Lead for PwC's online Grants and Incentives service, Nifty Forms. She joined PwC in 2016 and brings product and growth experience from successful Melbourne start-up stories Sidekicker, Flippa and NZ's Trade Me.

Adam Blakney - Founder @ Second Law Accelerator
I invest in smart people, clever ideas and innovative businesses. Like everyone in the start-up space, I want to see neat tech and cool products come into the market. But, more importantly, I want to see founders become entrepreneurs. But I’m a bit tired of seeing businesses with flashy paint jobs and stripped back interiors. So I’m changing the way founders think about early-stage business in Australia. As a result, I've created Second Law. We’re a Melbourne-based, commercial accelerator that provides seed funding and mentorship to Australian start-ups. We’re angels, investors and business coaches. But most of all, I teach founders how to be entrepreneurs.

Bill Rutten - Head of Community @ TwoSpace
Bill has a background in Economics with Masters in innovation and sustainability. He soon discovered that his true passion lies with entrepreneurship; this is the way to change the game. It wasn’t until he had traveled the world and landed in Australia that he became hungry and foolish enough to start a project of his own. Ecoshift was born. Bill has since worked as an innovation consultant, ran a startup accelerator and started a project called Food Hero that tackles food waste with a business model.
These days he is Head of Community and Founding Team Member @ TwoSpace. Growing Melbourne while creating a world class culture is where his head is at.


MC probing away:

Alexandra Rushan - Experience Coordinator @ Academy Xi
Al is an Experience Coordinator at Academy Xi here in Melbourne. After completing her degree in International Development, she spent 5 years working in and around Social Impact locally and abroad, before taking a detour into the big bad world of startups as a Community Manager in one of Melbourne’s tech hubs. She likes to get her hands dirty in all things Community, and her passion for people, technology and social impact have really come together in her current role in an epic way!
