Blamey Saunders Hears walked away with the title of Anthill’s “Coolest Company 2015” at the 10th annual Cool Company Awards on Thursday night.

The company,  which specialises in helping those with hearing difficulties, was recognised for its innovative IHearU program, which allows users to tune their own devices using a laptop or mobile phone.

Founder and managing director of Blamey Saunders Hears, Doctor Elaine Saunders said that she was thankful that the company’s work to help people had been acknowledged.

But what makes a company “cool”?

According to Anthill founder and MC extraordinaire, James Tuckerman, “cool” companies are “remarkable” companies.

In other words, they are worthy of being talked about.

“They can be amazing, innovative, one-of-a-kind,” said Tuckerman. “They can be all those things. But what sets cool companies apart is that they are, by their very nature, worthy of being ‘remarked’ about.”

The “gangsta” themed night, held at the Cluster in Melbourne’s CBD, crowned winners across 11 categories.
