Exciting Innovations Unveiled at the 54th Edition of Perth Angels Pitch Night

May 22, 2024

On May 22nd, we had an extraordinary evening at the 54th edition of Perth Angels Pitch Night. Four founders took the stage, captivating us with their businesses and innovative ideas. We were thrilled to hear from Penelope Lane from Esfam Biotech, Ewan Le Bourhis from Property To Renovate, Dylan Gray from Neo eX, Dean Shipp from Hy-Boost Technology

Penelope Lane introduced us to their work in developing two new small molecule drugs targeting advanced cancer and infectious diseases. Their first drug shows broad-spectrum antiviral activity, while the second offers cancer-agnostic applications. With globally recognised scientific leadership and wholly owned IP, Esfam Biotech is poised to address significant global medical conditions with limited treatment options.

Dean Shipp showcased their hydrogen co-fire system, designed to retrofit combustion engines. This system generates hydrogen on demand to assist fuel combustion, resulting in significant reductions in harmful emissions and improved fuel efficiency. Recent tests have shown up to a 35% improvement in fuel savings. Hy-Boost has now begun sales to a large logistics company, marking a significant milestone in their journey.

Ewan Le Bourhis presented Property to Renovate (Early Match), their Pre-Agency matching service, Early Match, which connects buyers and sellers without the need for legal paperwork, thus reducing friction. Specialising in properties requiring significant renovation or demolition, they operate in an underserved market. Fully licensed in real estate, Early Match can handle both off-market and on-market property sales.

Dylan Gray introduced Neo eX, a SAAS B2B business that integrates wearables data directly into clients’ existing member or user experiences. Their platform’s unique selling proposition lies in the engagement and gamification tools provided, ensuring high user retention. Additionally, their data analytics deliver actionable insights from continuous behavioral and activity data, adding immense value to their clients.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Carbon Group for hosting the event and serving delicious pizzas, creating a welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere. Our gratitude also goes out to our sponsor VICI Ventures, a Visagio Company, along with EIR, Carbon Group, and our business supporters Spacecubed, the City of Perth, and the Government of Western Australia for their unwavering support.

Finally, thank you to everyone who joined us and contributed to making the night a resounding success. Your presence and enthusiasm are what make events like these possible and impactful.

We look forward to the next edition of Perth Angels Pitch Night and continuing to support the innovative spirit of our startup community!
