Imagine not being able to identify the sound of coins jingling in your pocket. That’s exactly what happened when Elliot Miller went for a jog shortly after getting his Cochlear implant.
We couldn’t be more proud of Elliot and as part of his prize for winning the award, we’ll be working with him to deliver $20K worth of services to take his business to the next level. He’ll also receive 12 months of coworking space and business support at Cohort Innovation Space.
Elliot will be working together with us to define and execute a strategy to propel him on his journey to becoming a HealthTech success story.
We're thrilled to be awarded first prize for the LuminaX HealthTech program and we look forward to the experience of working together with Guerrilla to further help those with hearing loss hear new sounds and build confidence,” Elliot said.
Elliot was one of ten accelerator participants as part of a 14-week HealthTech Accelerator Program. The accelerator program attracted Australian Healthtech startups that are launching or refining existing products, providing them with a structured industry-led programme and access to connections, mentoring and coworking space.
Hearoes provides an accessible auditory training platform, to empower those with hearing loss through gamified and engaging activities to identify new sounds.
The platform works closely with clinicians and provides a series of specialised activities to help participants distinguish sounds in different environments. Using a learn by play philosophy to track progress, Hearoes allows for additional time to be spent where development is needed.
The award is another exciting win for Hearoes, which just months ago secured $190,000 from global venture capital firm Antler during a pre-seed round.
