Winners of Croc Pitch 2019

Congratulations to all the contestants who pitched at Croc Pitch 2019. There were 19 incredible Northern Territory entrepreneurs who showcased some of the Territory’s most innovative ideas.

We are excited to announce Sam Pattemore of Corrosion Instruments as the 2019 winner.

The technology accurately measures cathodic protection, collecting data in real-time, improving an outdated and costly process by providing a tool that didn't exist before.
