Regional innovators, it’s your time to shine!

18 May 2017

At Sauce, we’re all about providing avenues for rural and regional businesses and people to receive the same opportunities as those in the big smoke – that’s why we were so thrilled to partner with Australia Post Regional Pitchfest!

Australia Post Regional Pitchfest gives anyone from regional Australia with a bright idea the chance to pitch to an expert panel in front of a live audience, for the chance to win a share in $100,000 worth of prizes and gain access to life-changing business growth opportunities, mentoring and networking.

Sauce’s regional focus and media expertise has been utilised to raise awareness and drum up publicity for the event, with our team generating over 500 media hits so far and counting! This required a highly-tailored approach to media outreach to ensure we were able to reach people living in particular rural and remote areas across the country, and ensure they had access to this amazing opportunity from Australia Post.

After receiving hundreds of applications from around Australia, the top five finalists from each state or territory have now been announced, with state finals to be held throughout June and July, before the best of the best compete at the national finals in Wagga Wagga on Friday, 18 August. Find out where and when your state final is here and go along to support the next wave of up and coming entrepreneurs!

It has been fantastic to work on a project so closely aligned to Sauce’s own values, and we can’t wait to follow it through to the end and see what incredible ideas are brought forward by regional innovators through this process.
