Startup pitches for Canberra’s biggest innovation program (InnovationACT) tonight. Highlights:

  • A drone company that uses drones to help track animals for conservation and research uses.
  • Invention of a large ‘wireless charging mat’ that could change the way we charge our mobile devices.
  • A venture with a social goal – to connect aspiring musical artists with aged care facilities and bring better quality music to the lives of the elderly.

Listening from aspiring business owners with a passion to change the world can be inspiring and exciting.

Though, depending on what type of business you look at, some statistics show that some business-owners would have been off better sticking to their day jobs.
