- Demo Day at ANZ Innovyz START: It’s A Wrap
Yesterday was Demo Day at ANZ Innovyz START. Months of work came to a head.
It has been a roller-coaster ride for the DataMunch team. We won first-prize at Startup Weekend Adelaide in November 2012. Soon after, we were accepted into the ANZ Innovyz START program. We registered our company and have been working away vigorously ever since. It has been a phenomenal ride!
Two weeks ago, I decided that Demo Day was a good milestone to leave the DataMunch team. The next 12-18 months in the DataMunch timeline will be primarily focused on technology development, based out of Adelaide. I have decided that travel is on the horizon and that the team is in a good position to move forward without me. As such, today is my last day with the team.

- Weeks 5-6 at ANZ Innovyz START: The Turning Point
Mad March is upon us in Adelaide. The city is bustling. There is music and activity in venues all over the city. In the middle of the chaos is a group of 10 startups working to a deadline – 18th April 2013. We’re about halfway through the ANZ Innovyz START Program. Week Six has come to an end and I feel we’re at a turning point. The DataMunch team is making headway and excitement is brewing.
- Weeks 3-4 at ANZ Innovyz Start: Whiplash to Progress
Another two weeks have flown by at ANZ Innovyz START. It’s been absolutely mental. A week of mentors and a week of intense work. As I’m writing this, my desk is covered in paper. I have notes everywhere. I’ve spent the day consolidating it all and finishing off tasks from last week. Now, I’m feeling like we’re in a good spot.
