The team at Quashed is excited to share that we came first place in Soda Inc.'s first seed grant competition. This win provided the team with $5,000 in cash to help fuel us on this journey towards making insurance easy for Kiwis to access and manage, and helped generate awareness of our mission in the community. We are thankful!
The event was supported by a bunch of really helpful and established business leaders in the community that is keen to see us and other startups succeed. Congratulations to the other winners of the night - Mrs Pickles and KoruKabl.
The seed grant competition held by Soda Inc (who runs several startup programmes across NZ to help businesses and is supported by range of organisations including Hamilton City Council and Callaghan Innovation) provided cash prizes and importantly validation programmes to help support and accelerate the growth of innovative ideas.
