2022 Remarkable Highlights

As we approach the end of 2022 we want to take this opportunity to reflect on everything we have achieved this year, and to say we’ve done ‘a lot’ feels like the understatement of the century.

Director of Remarkable US

Phew! We might just have a little lie down now! Haha! But on behalf of Cerebral Palsy Alliance, we send a special thanks to our partners icare NSW, Telstra, Vivcourt, SmartJob and TPG Telecom Foundation. 

It’s also important that we thank the community of Remarkable supporters including our startup founders, mentors, coaches, facilitators, friends and the extended Remarkable family!

We would not have been able to achieve everything that we did without this incredible community so from the bottom of our hearts we thank you all.

We are growing!

The idea for Remarkable developed in 2014 after a single design-athon event, that has since evolved into a hub of global programs, fellowships, summits and knowledge exchange, that supports the emerging disability-tech startup sector and the growth of innovation that positively impacts people with disabilities. While we have been around for a little under 7 years, the best is yet to come.

We often say that we are grateful for the advocates and allies who have come before. And we have both a right and a responsibility because of their work. Now we see a strong convergence happening, creating the conditions for rapid change. First, there is a recognition of the rich history of innovation by and with the disability community. Coupled with the fact that starting a company being the cheapest it has ever been, creates conditions for remarkable innovation. Second, there is an emerging market where people with disabilities are recognised for their purchasing power. Choice and control help shape markets. Mixed with this is the rise of diversity, equity and inclusion. This has begun to elevate disability in new ways in the corporate boardrooms of the world. And third, the rise of conscious capital and impact investing is seeing more investments flow into an often under-represented area of the market that is having both impact and profitability.

So Remarkable is growing the team in a deliberate way to help shepherd a really important part of this change. It is helping to create some more capacity across the global programs we are now running and also providing a greater extension of the pathway of support we can offer founders.
