We’ve had a great response to the BNZ Start-Up alley, with nearly 30 companies entering. The range, scope and ambition of entrants has been extremely impressive — as convener of the selection panel, Nat Torkington, put it, “there’s been lots of companies entered I’d never heard about, but which are a long way along!”
And as much as we’d love to showcase everyone, there’s only room for the six finalists. So without further ado, here they are!
“Educa – helping parents stay connected with children’s early childhood learning. We are thrilled to be selected as one of the six finalists for the BNZ Start-up Alley. To see how Educa can benefit you, talk to us at Webstock 2012.”
