iVvy founder wins tech award

Lauren Hall, the founder and CEO of hospitality software company iVvy, has won the Sue Wickenden Innovation in Technology award at the 2020 Women in Technology (WiT) Awards.

Hall launched iVvy in 2009, and has built five multi-million-dollar businesses across the manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and technology industries.

“This year has been a year of change for everyone, including WiT, so we decided to create an online celebration to champion the State’s remarkable women in science and technology,” said WiT president Dr Claudia Giurgiuman.

“With the devastating economic impact of COVID-19, harnessing our female talent and skill has never been more crucial, so this year, more than ever, the awards show had to go on.

“Many women are doing amazing work, and these awards are about giving them the recognition they deserve.”
