HealthEngine and Whispir made The Martec list of 100 growing tech companies to watch in 2018. Congratulations to both! We are delighted to have you as part of the Telstra Ventures family. Here’s to a great 2018.


In the last 12 months, HealthEngine has undergone rapid growth, doubling their workforce from 70 to 140 employees across offices in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne. Notably, they have appointed ex-Citibank IT director Mark Hammond as the company’s new Head of Technology, Engineering and Data Security, and former LinkedIn Australia sales director Mark Dick as Head of Sales.

This year’s growth has laid the foundations for continued growth in 2018. Their focus will be to continue building their customer base — currently 1.5 million patient users per month and around 5000 health practices — and expand their services across Australia.

Whispir helps businesses engage with their audience through easy-to-use communications applications and intelligent data-driven workflows.

In the past 12 months, Whispir has enjoyed rapid growth and continued international expansion, adding 75 new staff across Australia and New Zealand, Asia Pacific and North America. Looking ahead, Whispir has plans to double their headcount by 2020. Jeromy Wells, Whispir CEO says, “We have a bold vision for further expansion. The growth we have achieved so far will accelerate by building on our strengths with a product pipeline that includes AI, the internet of things and data analytics.”
