Startup Gippsland Pitch Showcase opening speech

“In true Gippsland country style where we take people as we find them, this program didn’t look for the cellophane, glossy, soy chai vanilla latte drinking, cosmopolitan, tech savvy 20 year old in a bean bag with a moustache they can barely grow, a man-bun and a smartphone glued to their hand (not that there’s anything wrong with that), they took full-time mum’s, people who didn’t know the lingo … “these people want me to be a unicorn! Am I in the wrong place?… they took people in gumboots, and they accepted these beautiful people for their authenticity and their passion. For their character and not for their apparent value on the outside.” Anthony Mayer, MC & Serial Entrepreneur, Online is Easy
