And Our BizGiver Finalists Are…

With another quarter comes another BizGiver competition. We received a ton of entries but could only pick a handful. The following 8 small businesses impressed us with their video submissions and their reasons for why they are wishing for a $2,000 grant to help grow their business. Congratulations to the following finalists:

1. Dust & Salt Design

Amy Skipper, owner of Dust & Salt Design has wished for $2,000 worth of lampshade manufacturing supplies to help keep her homemade business going during these tough times.

2. Liquid Ripples by Skipping Stones

Mia Pitassi, owner of Liquid Ripples has just launched a mobile refill station, offering her customers refillable household liquids, without the disposable plastic waste. This concept is not new in the world, but extremely delayed to the Australian market. Having great faith in our collective future, Mia purchased a second mobile wagon. In order to get it on the road, Mia has wished for the funds to have the work completed for registration and licencing.

3. The Urban Gypsy

Jacqueline BawtreeI is a storyteller, content creator, photographer and writer. Her camera is an important part of her toolset and she currently only has the one lens for it, limiting some of the jobs she can take on. A second lens would open up more opportunities to grow and strengthen her business.

4. Ben’s Physiotherapy

Ben is a physiotherapist who recently started his own business but is contending with the prospect of getting his own injuries. He has wished for an electrical table for his business, allowing for increased mobility in the way he can perform his duties – allowing him to not hurt himself in the process.

5. Stay Soft Studio

Liam Alexander and Kayla Moon run Stay Soft Studio, an arts events space & photography studio. It is home to a multi-disciplinary group of creatives who work flexibly in and for the space. The studio prides itself on celebrating the diverse community in Melbourne (Naarm), and exploring the art it renders across all mediums and throughout all cultures. They are wishing for the funds to finish furnishing the arts studio, with plants and a lick of paint.

6. Kyal Bones

Kyal is a disability support worker who can face times where his clients could need immediate life saving treatment available to them. So he is well-equipped for this possible scenario, Kyal has wished for an AED machine and first aid kit. In today’s current climate there are not enough AED machines available to the public to access nor enough signage in public spaces advising which businesses have invested in the life saving equipment. Having this equipment and also being qualified as he is to use this equipment could save not only his client’s lives but someone in our greater community.

7. Big Bite Dutch Treats

The owner of Big Bite Dutch Treats have a very simple wish: storage, storage and storage. Ideally, professional sturdy stacking crates for everything! And a trolley to move them around.

8. Paul Farina

Paul’s whole business is surviving on 100% online delivery. As restrictions ease, online delivery will continue to be a big chunk of his business. He has been able to manage with the tools he currently has, but he really wants to lift his game so the experience is made smoother for not just himself but his clients by delivering an enhanced audio-visual experience for them. Paul has wished for a new camera, a touch screen to use as a virtual whiteboard, a stream deck, streaming software, and cabling that would uplift his studio for the online delivery of his education experiences.
