New Zealand startup 9 Spokes has won the 2014 IBM SmartCamp Sydney competition.

9 Spokes’ platform integrates data from popular SaaS tools and online business software and displays it in real time on a single dashboard,  helping start-ups and smaller businesses manage and scale their models more intuitively and efficiently. IBM SmartCamp Sydney’s judges recognised 9 Spokes as having a mature go-to-market strategy and clearly articulated unique selling proposition.

This is the third SmartCamp event to be held in Australia and New Zealand as part of IBM’s Global Entrepreneur Program, one of a series of worldwide events in which expert advisors – including venture capitalists, serial entrepreneurs, and technical specialists – mentor participating teams, who subsequently pitch their ideas to the IBM SmartCamp’s judging panel.
