It was a great day - congrats to Larry Lopez, Bill Tai and everyone involved. A lot of Silicon Valley guys in town. 5 very impressive finalists - the idea for Freight Exchange was actually born in Fremantle, so WA can claim that (!). APE Mobile is a very noble finalist and it was very strong competition with Kindy just nudging out the others. (Disclaimer - I was a judge and Business News were a sponsor of the Awards)

Proud sponsors I would like to add. As an addendum, I was at a function last night hosted by US consul-general Cynthia Griffin and featuring her boss, US Ambassador to Australia John Berry, as a special guest. Both had attended the OzApp awards and were very enthusiastic about the event.

Hey Charlie, it was an awesome day. Very interesting panel discussions and some serious Silicon Valley bigwigs in town. We didn't win, but just being in the top 5 and getting a chance to pitch in front of the judges and the audience is massive. I should point out that the article references some customers we haven't got.....yet! And thanks for sponsoring the event, it s really big deal for the Perth startup community.

Congrats to all the winners, and a round of thanks and congratulations to Larry, Rohan and all the organisers.
