Congratulations are in order for Mikaela Jade!
The CEO and app founder has just been announced winner of the Veuve Clicquot New Generation Award 2018. The award recognises female entrepreneurs under the age of 40 and is based on entrepreneurship, innovation and corporate social responsibility.
Mikaela's storytelling app Indgitial uses augmented reality (think Pokemon Go) to tell the ancient stories of indigenous people, developed in consultation with traditional owners. And, unsurprisingly, it’s earning attention from technology giant, Microsoft and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
It's no wonder this entrepreneur won over the judging panel comprised of Australia's most prominent business women; Elizabeth Ann Macgregor (Museum of Contemporary Art), Naomi Simson (RedBalloon) and Sarah-Jane Clarke (Sass & Bide).
The prestigious award was presented by International actress and Philanthropist Freida Pinto, in Sydney on Tuesday evening.
