Announced last night at Electra House, the winners will receive professional services to the value of $15,000 along with a $5,000 cash element for the Start-Up category.
The Perks Business Boost Awards was created to assist start-ups and established businesses across all sectors and industries with almost 100 high-calibre entries received across both categories.
Tung Tran impressed judges with his innovative Start-Up idea, MyEvidence, which is designed to enhance investigations through intuitive technology in order to streamline the justice process and maximise successful prosecutions.
The Business Growth category winner was MediPedi Nail Spa’s Georgina Jamieson and Tom Baker. MediPedi, based in Unley, is Adelaide’s first medical nail spa combining specialised podiatry services with a pampering nail spa.
Perks Managing Director Mark Roderick said judges were very impressed by the submissions and it was a difficult task to narrow the list down to just nine finalists and the two overall winners.
“Our state is full of bright ideas and young businesses ready to push the boundaries and shine,” he said.
“We are so proud to be able to provide invaluable support to the two winners through professional services tailored to their specific business needs.
“We congratulate Tung and Georgina on their efforts to excite all members of the judging panel with their entrepreneurial flair and are looking forward to working alongside them to help them grow.”
Both Tung and Georgina will receive professional services ranging from budgeting, forecasting and finance to human resource management, business or start-up advisory supplied by Perks and public relations and graphic design supplied by Michels Warren PR and China Shop Graphic Design.
In addition, Tung will receive $5,000 cash to use to bring MyEvidence to life.
