The Innes48 business startup competition is an annual event hosted by Soda inc. where local entrepreneurs are given 48 hours to come up with and then present a business case to some of the Waikato’s and New Zealand's most recognised business minds in a bid to win over $25,000 in prizes to kickstart the idea and make it a reality.
This year the event is happening at The Atrium, Wintec House, Hamilton from the 27th - 29th of March, so if you’re in the neighbourhood come along and support the teams.
We are TenFour Digital a team of entrepreneurial developers, and a designer, looking to make our mark on the world. Hailing from the far reaches of the globe, the team bring a wealth of overseas experience to the shores of the mighty Waikato. When the seven wise and whiskered are not developing innovative mobile app experiences, sketching illustrious designs, or pitching world step change ideas over after work drinks for fun, they’re out enjoying an adventurous lifestyle!
We're also one of the 15 teams lucky enough to be chosen to participate in the event this year and we're looking forward to getting a shot at the 25K!
As soon as the competition was up online and we were able to enter, Matt Smith the team captain pulled together the best minds in Hamilton, New Zealand to form Ten Four Digital. Going through ups and downs already, members coming and going, we were left with the best team combination of technical, creative and business skills all under one roof.
Since then, Ten Four Digital have launched thier creative website http://tenfour.digital started a startup funding campaign and even a spotify team public playlist!
