Who will be pitching?
The four enterprises pitching will be selected from a pool of 30+ organisations that have taken part in the inaugural year of the Two Feet program (http://www.tdi.org.au/events/two-feet-program/), an accelerator program developed by The Difference Incubator and sponsored by NAB.
This year's Two Feet participants are an inspiring and diverse group of entrepreneurs with big ideas to make a positive social or environmental impact. Partipants range from tech platforms to help refugees settle into their new country, to responsible tourism startups that use cycling to connect people with communities and create fundraising for NGOs to RSPCA-affiliated enterprises that match isolated Australians with rescue animals in need.
