We are absolutely thrilled to be announced as winners of the Telstra Australian Start-Up Business Award for 2013! We’d love to say a big thank you to all our amazing team, and of course to our fabulous customers for their support.
The 2013 Telstra Australian Business Awards were held at the Star Event Centre in Sydney last Thursday, and the night included engaging presentations from personalities such as Mark Bouris, Executive Chairman of Yellow Brick Road Wealth Management.
Finding the Australian health insurance industry too complex and confusing for customers, health.com.au CEO Andy Sheats launched the business with the vision of reinventing health insurance for younger, healthier Australians who want to interact online. Andy and his team of insurance and digital experts worked to design hassle-free policies that are easy to buy, understand and use and accessible at all hours.
In just 15 months since our launch, health.com.au has experienced exciting growth with over 40,000 members joining the health.com.au family.
Judges at the Telstra Business Awards national gala event said health.com.au was the epitome of a first-class start-up, based around an effective web-based business model that offered a simple product.
health.com.au would like to say a huge congratulations to all the other finalists and winners on the night, to the Telstra Business Awards for hosting such a great event and last (but definitely not least!) to all our amazing customers and staff. Without them, none of this would be possible.
