Australia Post Regional Pitchfest gives anyone from regional Australia with an idea the chance to pitch to a panel in front of a live audience. It is a national program of business growth opportunities and experiences for entrepreneurs and small business owners.



Di Somerville | Founder, Regional Pitchfest

Did you know that the idea behind Regional Pitchfest originated in Wagga Wagga, NSW? Just like you, founder Di Somerville is from rural Australia and used to experience the same doubts about her own ideas too. Listen below to her amazing story.


Andy Shuttleworth and Will Hood (Albury, NSW)

Andy Shuttleworth and Will Hood pitched at the first event in Wagga Wagga a business allowing golfers to virtually experience courses. The company recently signed a deal with the United States arm of the PGA.

Suzanne Carroll is proof that you can grow a successful ecommerce company from anywhere in Australia. Her company, which sells handbags that also act as coolers, earned her first place at the Bendigo event last year.

“The opportunity is there for anyone who wants to have a crack.”
