S10E19 Pioneera

Pioneera‘s Danielle Owen Whitford and Tahnee Claeys wanted to find a way to alleviate workplace stress and burnout. Their solution, ‘Indi’, helps employees recognise stressful moments and situations – and offers guidance to them. TWISTA asks whether can managers integrate Pioneera to make workplaces more positive – and more productive? That’s why Pioneera is TWISTA’s tenth and final WORLDCHANGING startup of Series 10.

S05E07 – Anne-Marie Birkill & Maxwell MRI

TWISTA visited Brisbane’s River City Labs two years ago – and my goodness, how much has changed. The new government has put nearly half a billion dollars into funding various startup activities – including a lavish new ‘Precinct’ for the startup community.

TWISTA talks to two residents of The Precinct, Anne-Marie Birkill, Managing Partner of OneVentures, then we catch up with one of the most mind-blowing startups we’ve ever had on this show, Maxwell MRI (now Maxwell Plus) co-founders Elliot Smith and Matt Brown. It’s all happening in Queensland, on this episode of TWISTA.
