Creative3 Pitch winners ‘Bluethumb’ to represent Australia at Creative Business Cup in Denmark

Creative3 Pitch winners, Bluethumb, will represent the nation at the Creative Business Cup in Copenhagen, Denmark from 17-18 November, with an international jury choosing the winners based on the criteria of creativity and market potential.

The Adelaide / Melbourne-based startup will compete against 63 countries at the world championships for creative entrepreneurs, the Creative Business Cup, after successfully pitching at Australia’s Creative3 forum.

Bluethumb co-founders, George and Edward Hartley said they were thrilled to represent Australia in the world championships of creative innovation.

“We believe we are building something really great with Bluethumb here in Australia which has global market potential. Showcasing it at an international competition like the Creative Business Cup is a great first step to reaching that global stage,” said Edward.

Bluethumb qualified to compete at the international Creative Business Cup through QUT Creative Enterprise Australia’s Creative3 Pitch on September 17 in Brisbane.

“The Creative3 Pitch is Australia’s only event dedicated to connecting creative ventures with investors. We’re proud to be the first Australian host for the Creative Business Cup and to support Bluethumb in their international debut,” said QUT Creative Enterprise Australia CEO, Anna Rooke.

“Bluethumb will have the opportunity to pitch to some of the biggest venture capitalists in Europe and compete for a prize pool of over USD $35,000. Last year’s Creative3 Pitch finalists went on to secure early stage investment also, so this is potentially a life-changing opportunity for all involved.

“The Creative Business Cup will profile Bluethumb on a global stage and highlights the potential for growth, jobs and innovation in this sector. It’s great that Australia can now compete on the world stage.”
