Alastair Blenkin

Founder @Hyra iq

Alastair Blenkin is a former top-tier corporate property lawyer. Dissatisfied by the endless flow of high-volume commercial contracts (a.k.a. “grunt work”) and spotting a gap in the legal-tech market for portfolio contract negotiation solutions, Alastair trusted his instincts and jumped out of the law and into start-up land.

Hyra iQ automates high volume high value contract negotiation using artificial intelligence. The platform creates “scalable legal services” – unlocking corporate knowledge allowing rapid completion of contract negotiations, consistently, at pace & scale. With granular, real time visibility across portfolio, people and geography, legal is transformed from a “black box” to a source of strength that empowers business decisions.

Natalie Taquet

Founder & CEO @Bottli & @eBottli

After 15 years working as research scientist, Natalie came in Australia because she wanted to start a project that looks like her.  When she arrived, she noticed that French wines made by little and passionate craftsmen were not well represented. As her family is in the wine field in France, it jumped right out at her. Things as usual and essential in France as the cork stopper, the corkscrew and the “pop” noise made by the unbottling are just on option here. She decided to ally her passion to this observation. This is how Bottli is born.

Bottli delivers French wine boxes to your home each month. It aims to share not only high quality French wine in Australia but also the history behind their making. Each bottle is made with heart and dedication by a little French wine maker.

Mark Howard & Richard Fifita

Co-founders @Veyor Digital

After years of dealing with the pain of using manual, disjointed systems to manage highly dynamic construction environments, Richard, a former senior engineer on large scale building and infrastructure projects, developed the ideas behind Veyor.   With a mindset towards continual improvement and innovation he was determined to make a difference in the a sector which is plagued with inefficiency.  Forming a business with long term friends Mark, an experienced fund manager in the property industry, and Stephen, a former director at a global investment bank, they have been able to establish a strong team with a diverse skill set, attract some experienced investment partners, and develop out a platform which is now used by most of the leading top tier builders in Australia and on some of the largest and most complex construction projects in the country.

Veyor is a cloud based, live logistics planning, co-ordination and data analytics tool for the construction industry, connecting all parties in real time and enhancing productivity.
