Congratulations Phonic Path
Congratulations to team Phonic Path for winning the 2013 South Coast Startup Camp Merimbula!
Phonic Path (http://phonicpath.com/ ) aim to provide a smartphone app that provides tourists audio tours of the area they are visiting. The business was inspired by Jackie Stallard’s experiences living in Birdsville and hearing tourists arriving from the Birdsville Track saying that the trip was boring, oblivious to the fantastic stories, history and environment they’d just travelled through.
The team believe that lots of valuable content already exists but is held by many distributed bodies including local tourism groups, government agencies and other organisations. Phonic Path aim to bring all this content together in an easy to access, app-style environment for tourists.
Phonic Path was judge by the evaluation panel to be the team with the business idea and plan with the stongest story, and likely to receive strong support from local tourism and regional development agencies.
