Vinnovate co-founder and Venture Catalyst recipient, Joshua Schmidt was awarded Best Pitch Presenter among a number of other national and international companies at the Land Forces 2016 'Innovation Pitchfest' on 8 September 2016. 

Land Forces 2016 Innovation Pitchfest provided an opportunity for the Defence Science and Technology Group, academia and industry researchers, and innovators to present new innovations and research projects to a mix of potential customers, research partners and venture capitalists in the defence industry. It is a collaborative initiative by the Defence Science Institute (Victoria), the Defence Science and Technology Group and Defence SA.
