Canberra startup SignOnSite has been unveiled as one of the final 32 teams internationally in this year’s Saint-Gobain NOVA Innovation Competition. The teams have been selected from a pool of over 300 applicants worldwide, with SignOnSite being the sole representative from Australia and the rest of the cohort being based in China, Europe and the USA.
“We’re really excited to be bringing innovation into the construction industry and helping companies reimagine how they use technology at work.” Said CEO Mitch Harmer
SignOnSite is a Work Health and Safety platform that uses smart phones to register everyone who enters and leaves a worksite, enabling organisations to safeguard their employees, contractors and visitors.
The NOVA Innovation Competition was established in 2008 and rewards startups offering the most innovative solutions in the field of habitat, sustainable products, advanced materials, renewable energy sources and high-efficiency building solutions.
The top 8 teams will be flown to Washington DC, USA in November to compete in a rapid-pitch interview event at the Greenbuild International Expo.
The 2015 winners will be awarded cash prizes totaling $100,000 USD. In addition, the most promising startups may also be given the opportunity to discuss potential partnerships with Saint-Gobain businesses.
SignOnSite is also a nominee in multiple categories for the national iAwards, to be announced at Melbourne iAwards Gala Dinner on 27th August.
SignOnSite was accepted into the prestigious GRIFFIN Accelerator in June 2015, and is about to conclude the program by hosting Demo Days in Sydney on Tuesday 25th August and Canberra on Thursday 27th August.
