Thanks for the mention Brad, it was great to see how much Tech23 has evolved since last year’s event. This year’s 23 startups were all more polished, had progressed further towards commercialisation, and were solving bigger and more ambitious problems. We’re stoked to receive the People’s Choice Award for Bugherd among such a strong field.
If you ever want a chat with the Bugherd team let us know. Cheers!
