We won, and in 2 categories! Thank you to everybody who voted!
A Wagga Wagga based digital entrepreneur and coffee lover has been recognised as the winner of two categories in the Australian Mobile Awards, announced last night (30 August).
Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Stoner said Simone Eyles’ new 365cups app (365cups.com) secured the top ranking for best ‘web’ and ‘food & drink’ categories at the awards.
“365cups allows coffee lovers to place an order on their smartphone to make it easier for them to skip the queue, pick up their coffee and go.
“It’s another example of the excellence in innovation, creativity and digital entrepreneurship we have here in NSW and these awards are fantastic recognition of Simone’s efforts to drive the business.
“NSW Trade and Investment has provided a range of support to the business, including local support from the Wagga Wagga Trade & Investment office.
“NSW Trade & Investment’s support for 365cups has included advice on business mentoring, business pitching, angel investment and other resources aimed to help high growth companies.
“The Department has also provided general advice to help the company navigate the export market, including information on non-disclosure agreements, drafting international agreements and contracts, and registering intellectual property overseas.
“365cups will be on show in Melbourne this month, with NSW Trade & Investment supporting the company’s attendance on the Flavours of NSW stand at the upcoming Fine Food Australia exhibition between 10-13 September.
“Simone and 365cups are going from strength to strength, recently processing their 50,000th order via the smartphone app.
“The business is building a strong base in Australia and New Zealand, and exploring opportunities to export the service to other coffee loving countries around the world.”
