Sadler was one of eight startup founders to present his company to a jury consisting of John Kearney, Head of Startups and Scaleups at AWS; Siobhan Casey, director of the ACS Innovation Labs; Stew Glynn, co-founder of Ten13; and moderated by RCL mentor Peter Laurie.

Xiippy shared Best of the Best honors with Stripped Supply, a startup that provides a subscription box for people with diabetes that automatically ships much-needed supplies like insulin.

Stripped Supply founder Ashley Hanger said she was thrilled to showcase her company to a crowd of entrepreneurs and venture capitalists at Friday’s pitching competition.

Founder Mark Hartmann described it as a “great opportunity” to showcase Queensland’s tech startup ecosystem.

River City Labs General Manager Pauline Fetaui said she was proud of the quality of emerging technology companies across Queensland.

“Congratulations to the winners of River Rival and thank you to all the speakers who presented over two days and the week as part of Something Tech and Something Fest,” she said.

Siobhan Casey said she loved seeing entrepreneurs discover ways to make a difference in the world.
