Making a Ripple in the Australian business community
December 13th, 2007
Tracy Bialek, managing director of Ripple Products, has been announced winner of the 2007 (Victorian) Australian Government Innovation Award, for her ingenuity and innovation in business.
This follows her win earlier in the year for the 2007 (Victorian) Australian Government Micro Business Award.
The Awards are a part of the Telstra Business Awards program, which recognise Australia’s most outstanding businesses and business women.
Bialek started her business with a single product idea. The success of the ’Shower Timer’ has established Ripple Products in the environmental sector. Other products include the ’Water-Saving Bucket’ and
‘Enviro-Tips’ – both are educational solutions for water conservation.
All products are available on the website and through retail stores.
