My Plan Manager

NDIS financial services provider My Plan Manager, runner up for the overall award, received the female leadership award for the highest-ranked company with a female founder or CEO.

Founder Claire Wittwer-Smith launched the venture on a kitchen table in Adelaide in 2014. It was the sector’s first app for tracking NDIS  budgets. 

“As well as helping clients to use their NDIS funding to live their very best lives, I wanted to offer the  same technology that we all use in managing our personal banking, so that clients could access their  NDIS budget the same way,” she said.

Autoguru

The car servicing website, which closed Series A funding round in February this year and secured $6 million in funding from OUTsurance in May, has already transformed the way consumers book a car service. And this is just the beginning for the ambitious business, which likens itself to booking.com for auto servicing.

Already, AutoGuru has become the first car servicing provider in Australia to offer AfterPay. In coming months, the startup also hopes to communicate directly with cars for predictive marketing.
