ANZ Flying Start Business Plan Competition 2014
Correction to list of winners in the 2014 ANZ Flying Start Business Plan Competition
On the 30th of October, the 2014 ANZ Flying Start Business Plan Competition awards ceremony was held. Wellington-based company STQRY was named as the supreme winner.
Subsequently, as a result of a review of eligibility, STQRY has had to be disqualified, as it did not meet the terms and conditions of the competition.
This outcome is unfortunate for STQRY, who did not deliberately breach the terms and conditions. Business.govt.nz wishes STQRY all the very best for their future endeavours.
This decision means that Creative Hype has assumed first place and is now the 2014 supreme winner. Congratulations to Clay Caird and his Christchurch-based team.
Creative Hype produces flat-form cardboard replica sports helmets, designed to be worn by fans and act as an engaging in-stadium advertising platform for teams and sponsors.
Second place now goes to Kiwa Digital Ltd, and third place goes to Dr Feelgood and Snolo jointly.
Creative Hype is about to launch into the USA which is totally different from any of the markets it already operates in.
Founding Director Clay Caird says, “The planning process was invaluable to clearly identify and analyse what the differences are in the USA and how we will conduct our business differently in that market.”
