What a great night we had at the Fisherman’s Bend Innovation Challenge Pitch night at ARRB – Australian Road Research Board on Thursday 28 July.

Six exciting concepts delivered pitches to panels of judges aimed at solving challenges in the precinct, with almost 100 people joining in person and close to 50 participating online. The three finalists in the IDEAS Stream shared in more than $20,000 cash and prizes.

Data Flows by @EXCX Design Collective took out the People’s Choice Award voted by the audience on the night for their innovative light-based indicators that display real-time data measurements from the water infrastructure on and under the ground. Congratulations also to Bonnie So and Michael Bridges for their excellent pitches.

The three PILOT Stream pitches are vying for $70,000 prize money and will be selected by vote on Participate Melbourne.
