Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has been announced as one of three judges of Talent Unleashed, a competition to identify the best tech companies in five categories. Fellow judges are Virgin founder Richard Branson and Facebook VP Nicola Mendelsohn.
The Talent Unleashed Awards are on the hunt for ground breaking technology superstars across five global categories across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe and the UK. Celebrating today’s passionate leaders, tomorrows change makers, bold innovation and game changing ideas.
There are five categories, including Best Start-up (Social Impact), Best Start-up (Tech Innovation) and Best Digital SME.
The prize is one-on-one time with Woz, but as this is described as time with him ‘at an exclusive cocktail party,’ it’s not clear that this is the kind of consultancy input entrants might hope for.
Woz retains an honorary position with Apple, but does not play an active role. He does, though, sometimes comment on the company, siding with Apple against the FBI but expressing concern at the complexity of the Apple Watch line-up.
