SEQTA proudly takes out the 2015 Business News Rising Stars Award. Announced at the main event on 30 June 2015 at the State Theatre of WA, the award serves as recognition of the hard-work and dedication of the team. Founders Grant and Sharon Grosser, along with CEO John Vickers, accepted the award on the evening. During their acceptance speech, John Vickers highlighted the passion the team has for making SEQTA thrive, and thanked those who made it all possible:
Thank you to Business News, to the sponsors, and particularly acknowledging the founding directors Grant and Sharon Grosser. Without their vision, passion, enthusiasm, and personal sacrifice, we would not have the business we have today. To the growing, amazing SEQTA team we have today, you’ve each played your important part. I think last but not least at all, our clients, who’re all schools, and in particular the 17,000 teachers who use our software on a daily basis, this business exists for you. Thank you.
– John Vickers, CEO
In the article ‘SEQTA Shines Among Rising Stars’, Dan Wilkie writes:
Educational software provider SEQTA has capped a remarkable year of growth being named the Business News Rising Stars award winner for 2015.
SEQTA has developed a suite of software designed to free teachers up from time-consuming administrative tasks and allow them to do what they’re employed to do – teach.
The web-based software also allows teachers to effectively communicate and collaborate with parents and students on day-to-day tasks, such as assignments and homework, while it also streamlines reporting, absentee and permissions administration.
This year is the 12th installment of Rising Stars, which recognises the achievements of the state’s fastest growing, privately-owned companies.
The Rising Stars are judged across a number of metrics, including revenue and staff growth, as well as capability and commitment.
While headline numbers are taken into account, firms also need to show a solid growth strategy and commitment to continued growth to become a Rising Stars finalist.
