What inspired you to apply for the 2021 Cyber Accelerator Program?

I came across the program advertised on the Canberra Innovation Network’s website and knew straight away it would help our business.


What were your biggest key takeaways from the program?

Overall, the biggest key takeaways were to listen to your customers, understand their pain points and focus on where you can add value. It also taught me that you get out of the business what you put into it – so it really helped me focus on putting in the effort to the right areas in order to grow the business.


Do you have any advice for those looking to apply for future rounds of the Cyber Accelerator Program?
