Commenting on this success, ONTHEGO Sports founder and Managing Director Mick Spencer states “this is a great achievement for the team, we’ve been working hard the past 12 months and the really exciting thing is we feel we’re only just getting started.
“It was a very competitive category, with some other amazing Canberra companies, Inland Trading Co, Wildbear Entertainment and IE Asia Pacific, so we’re so humbled by this award.”
