Innovation and problem-solving led to seven of Tasmania's early stage startups pitching their business ideas on Thursday.
The Digital Demo Day for the Enterprize Tasmania Born Global Incubator is the final result of a 14 week program which took founders on a journey to learn everything from development principles to market testing.
One of the graduates and founder of BuildAPI, Leigh Curran, created a software platform to make the build process fast and simple for IT staff and others who spend too much time and money on building virtual infrastructure.
"I have been learning how to grow that business from an idea all the way through to an actual market-tested, fully fledged business," he said.
