Alex Sweetman has been announced as the winner of the inaugural Life Tech Challenge 2017.
Hume Bank and our partners would like to extend a massive congratulations to Alex Sweetman for coming out on top against some very tough competition at last night’s Life Tech Challenge! Alex’s innovation the ‘Lift Me Up’ mobile app aims to provide mental health resources and support to those in our local region.
“The technology aspect of it is underpinned by a professional counselling model, but what makes it different is that it will use the latest artificial intelligence and machine learning to have an intuitive, personalised experience”, shared Mr Sweetman.
A $10,000 prize and extensive mentorship with Possumworks, Litton Legal, Creativeworkz and Southern Cross Austereo will assist Alex in the development of the app.
Congratulations to all our finalists and a special mention to ZolveIt and Tecbox who took out second and third place, walking away with $1,000 each in prize money.
We thank you for your passion to challenge the norm, to innovate and create solutions that can improve our lives. We look forward to seeing what ideas you come up with next year!
