Josie Pacey, Founder of Keola Surf Wax, is the Winner of the 2022 GI Challenge.
Josie was judged the Winner after pitching her business venture to a panel of Sunshine Coast business experts and answering a series of probing questions. Josie received $5000 cash in seed funding and $5000 in business services (legal, finance/accounting, marketing & identity/branding) to help her launch Keola
Bailey Page, Founder of Zip Zap Chargers, and Eliza Blumke, Founder of SpeechPal, are this year’s runners up. Bailey and Eliza received $3000 and $2000 cash in seed funding respectively to help them progress their ventures.
Josie, Bailey and Eliza, and all of their fellow 2022 Entrepreneurs, are now officially GI Challenge alumni and join past Entrpreneurs from 2015 to 2021. The GI Challege Alumni is a truly an amazing pool of entrepreneurial talent.
A massive thank you to Generation Innovation’s wonderful Sponsors for making the annual GI Challenge, including these incredible prizes, possible. Without generous cash and in-kind Sponsors and a raft of volunteers – Mentors, Specialist Gurus, Master Class Experts and Directors – Generation Innovation would simply not exist.
