Moreton Bay Region home to one of Australia's leading female innovators

Founder and CEO, Megan Avard from SurePact was announced this week as one of eight female founders to be selected for the 2019 Springboard Enterprises Tech Accelerator to be held in Sydney this month. Megan is among eight of Australia's most innovative female leaders!

Over the past few months the SBE Australian and American teams together with Springboard Enterprises Global have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing women leaders, review applications and interview short-listed applicants.

"This is a very prestigious opportunity for us", Megan Avard said. "SBE have helped female founded companies grow and succeed on a global scale, and SurePact is this year preparing to scale and launch globally".

Ms Avard also said, "Past members/Alumnae of Springboard Enterprises Programs have raised $207M to date, part of a global community of 685 women entrepreneurs that have collectively raised nearly $8B in capital, and include 15 IPOs and over 175 M&A events."

Ms Avard identified a gap in the market 18 months ago and launched her company, SurePact.

"The SurePact software is a risk identification and mitigation Enterprise SaaS for the delivery of contracts providing improved project and procurement outcomes. SurePact software provides a strong emphasis on visibility, transparency and accountability via contract and procurement analytics allowing for more confident business intelligence decisions", she said.

In 18 months SurePact has launched its software solution to 10% of the QLD Local Government market, now employs 8 staff and has received recognition at both State and National level, being announced the 2018 Asia Pacific Lendlease Startup of the Year.

Megan will also be heading back to Sydney to represent SurePact at the Awards Dinner for the "The 2019 Australia Small Business Champion Awards" as national finalists in the categories of Information Technology and Entrepreneurship.

Innovate Moreton Bay are looking forward to sharing the journey of SurePact with other regions in Queensland, and proud to be able to support another great Moreton Bay Tech Startup company! www.surepact.com
