On May 7, You Chews and our nine fellow start ups from the Telstra-backed Muru-D (a start up accelerator) presented and demoed our platform for hundreds of spectators (friends, family, employees, mentors, and potential investors) – it was an amazing evening, and truly, a culmination of so much of our hard work over the last six months or so.
For those of you that may not be familiar, You Chews was selected from 260+ applicants last fall by Muru-D as part of their second class. Essentially, the program supports the best digital talent that the Australasian region has to offer by offering startups, like You Chews, $40, 000 for 6% equity, six months in the co-working space, mentorship and access to investors, international markets and Telstra network. Quite the opportunity!
And then, as the program wound down, we presented our work on the infamous Demo Night. You Chews is pleased to report that we’ve grown significantly in both vendors and customers over the last six months – and we’re not stopping there! We’re dedicated to making the ordering process easy for our customers and vendors alike, and of course, to scouting some innovative and scrumptious meals for all your offie catering needs.
The evening consisted of You Chews CEO Liz Kaelin’s dynamic pitch, Q&A with various individuals, and in true You Chews fashion, an amazing array of food.
Thank you to all those who have helped support You Chews during our time at Muru-D. Cheers to the next exciting stages of You Chews! We’re excited for what’s next.
