Nexba Beverages has achieved national recognition as the winner of the first-ever Telstra Alumni Achievement Award.
Since winning the Telstra Australian Micro Business Award in 2015, the Judges felt that Nexba had taken their achievements to the next level.
Co-Founder Drew Bilbe said that the business has created a sugar-free alternative to soft drinks.
“All of our products are naturally sugar-free, as opposed to being artificially sweet. We have re-invented soft-drinks,” he said.
Telstra CEO Andy Penn said the national winners represented the best in business from across the country.
“The winners are all shining examples of businesses doing great things. They’re not afraid to take a risk, to choose innovation first and to keep pushing their vision forward. Getting to this stage of the Telstra Business Awards is a huge achievement. It’s the culmination of all their hard work,” Mr Penn said.
The Award was presented to Drew Bilbe, at a Gala Dinner held at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins on the 20th of September.
