Round 8 Lord Mayor’s Budding Entrepreneurs Program winners

Ian Conway-Lamb - Iridium Dynamics
Highgate Hill

"Iridium Dynamics is developing a drone technology which will provide businesses with long-range aerial inspection, surveying and mapping capabilities. It flies for hours, covering thousands of hectares, or hundreds of kilometres. The aircraft will be affordable enough to own outright. This is in contrast to paying drone or full-scale aircraft operators, which quickly becomes uneconomical with regular flights."

Mia Hickey – Estate Space

Budding Entrepreneurs Program "Estatespace is a platform that empowers people to sell their own home with all the help of an agent, minus the commission.  Sellers will be armed with cutting edge technology and professional advice from licensed agents, town planners, marketing specialists and conveyancers.  It means the home owner will be pocketing what would have been a real estate's commission."

Rhea Mozo – Zenify Me
Fortitude Valley

Budding Entrepreneurs Program "Many retail and professional businesses are moving their business online but find it hard to convert clients through their website. We help clients by generating leads with Live Chat AI Lead Generation. We generate leads for our clients through our AI live chat software from their website, converting them from visitors into actual sales."

Mitchell Robinson – IDU Digital Identification

Budding Entrepreneurs Program "“I’m a 15-year old teen entrepreneur who wants to make a difference in the world. To do this I founded IDU Digital Identification, which aims to prevent underage kids from gaining access to alcohol and allows venue patrons to go out with simply just their phone. Our app is the first of its kind, safely and securely storing a digital version of your ID so that when going out to a bar, pub, club, casino, cellar, festival or nightclub you no longer have to worry about leaving your ID at home or worry about it while you're out.”"

Lachlan Crane - SiteSee

Budding Entrepreneurs Program “SiteSee is a 3D visualisation cell tower analysis and auditing service for telcos and towercos. Our cloud-based service reduces site visits by merging drone technology with intelligent software to digitise, analyse and optimise cell tower infrastructure.
