Finalist in the Anthill Cool Company Awards

Media Release December 3, 2010

Vulture Street Innovation has been named one of Australia’s ‘Coolest’ businesses in Anthill Magazine’s Fifth Annual Cool Company Awards

 

Brisbane-based innovation firm Vulture Street has been named a Finalist in Anthill Magazine’s Fifth Annual Cool Company Awards, a national program developed in 2006 to recognise Australian companies that are doing things differently to bring about positive change.

Over 700 aspiring ‘cool companies’ were nominated for the 2010 awards, making ‘The Cools’ one of Australia’s largest business awards programs. The winners will be announced at an awards function on Thursday 16 December 2010 and published on AnthillOnline.com.

Vulture Street provides customised web-based platforms for collaboration and structured crowdsourcing, teamed with innovation consulting services. Their services allow organisations to access and prioritise ideas from their staff and stakeholders. Recent Vulture Street clients include Hyder Consulting, Energex, ETSA Utilities, Growth Management Queensland, and the Australian Industry Group.

“It’s great to be recognised for our unique approach to business this early in the life of the company – we started trading in mid 2009,” said Kate Morrison, Vulture Street Director. “The feedback we’ve had from our customers is that we fill a niche between traditional management consultants, and providers of innovation software.”

“The Cool Company Awards are extremely egalitarian,” said James Tuckerman, Editor-In-Chief, Anthill Magazine. “Previous winners have included two-person start-ups, not-for-profit social enterprises, large private companies and publicly-listed corporations. Judging takes into account far more than mere business variables, such as revenue and wealth. The criteria is geared to consider other qualities, from the disruptive nature of the product or service to the culture of the organisation.”
