WA Minister for Innovation, Bill Marmion, today announced KinChip Systems as a winner of the Government Chief Innovation Office inaugural Start IT Up WA Challenge.

KinChip Systems and its child development platform, ‘Kindom’, were awarded the major prize of $50,000, with ‘All of Me’ and ‘Hacker Pals’ sharing the remainder of the the $100,000 total prize pool.

Start IT Up WA Challenge is an innovative new program to nurture innovative, technology-based solutions to government problems, and build capability within the Western Australian startup community. In addition to cash, winners are awarded preferred provider status with the WA Government and have the opportunity to develop, beta test and demonstrate the commercial viability of their project in collaboration with a State Government agency.

Kindom was founded by Cath Resnick and Gry Stene. “1 in 6 children has a developmental disability.” Mrs Resnick said. “With child development services siloed between health, education and social, many children fall through the gaps, fail to get diagnosed, or simply don’t get the support they need, when they need it.”

Kindom has worked to solve this problem by providing one place where parents can store all their child’s health, education and social development records, along with their own reflections on their child’s developmental journey. It integrates the latest in artificial intelligence to guide parents through the system. With a parent centred approach to data sharing, Kindom also provides full care circle visibility to all members and a child’s care team. This facilitates collaboration, communication and ultimately reduces misdiagnosis and over-servicing.

Kindom’s development is overseen by Gry Stene. “Today we CAN create tools that provide relevant, quality information and resources that aid early discovery and intervention” Ms Stene said. “Imagine if we had discovered this earlier?”

KinChip Systems are thrilled to be the inaugural winners of the Start IT Up WA Challenge, and look forward to working with the West Australian Government to improve child development outcomes in WA.
