Social Status Wins iAccelerate Pitch Grand Final

What a night! We’re absolutely stoked to have taken out the top prize at the 2014 iAccelerate Pitch Grand Final last night in Wollongong. Social Status also won the runners up prize in the People’s Choice vote.

For us, the win validates the importance of social media analytics for all marketers – big and small. Data-led social strategy is absolutely key for reaching and engaging the right people with the right message on social. With hundreds of marketers getting value from Social Status already, if you haven’t signed up yet, jump on the bandwagon and start using Social Status today. It’ll save you a bunch of time reporting and help optimise your social content strategy.

But back to the pitch… we were up against 7 other fantastic teams with great products and super passionate founders. The pitch was preceded by a demo day where we met some great people including the NSW State Member for Kiama, Gareth Ward who is a bit of a social media geek (like us) but more importantly a real champion of innovation, technology and the digital economy. We definitely need more people like Gareth in Australian politics.

Plus we also got snapped in the Illawarra Mercury and were featured in iAccelerate’s great wrap up article.
