Australian startup TalkiPlay wins award at Google for Startups Asia Demo Day

TalkiPlay, an Australian startup that makes learning language fun for children, has won the Audience Choice Award at the Google for Startups Asia Demo Day.

The unique educational tool integrating software games and kid-friendly hardware can open up new worlds of opportunity for children in a tech-connected home.

Demo Day brings together talented entrepreneurs giving them the opportunity to shine, connect, and realise visions to solve big problems.

“As a company we certainly have ‘hatched’ through Google for Startups support and are empowered to grow, with access to global opportunities,” says Annie McAuley, founder of TalkiPlay.

TalkiPlay won the Audience Choice award at the recent Google for Startups Asia Demo Day held in Bangkok, where 11 finalists from around Asia-Pacific had the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to a distinguished panel of judges.

“The collaborative atmosphere created through Google for Startups Demo Day training days meant I got the chance to connect and understand the journeys of my fellow startup founders."

"Collaboration is key to scaling a business, and I feel very fortunate to have created these international APAC collaborations,” Annie McAuley said.
