    Introducing Project Diabetes

    Painless, needle free blood sugar monitoring - 

    The future of care for 1/2 a billion diabetics

    Project Diabetes is an Australian Company that has developed a blood sugar monitoring ring. 

    The ring collects bioimpedance data and sends it to the Company's App. The App sends the data to the Company's AI solution in the cloud. The proprietary AI converts that raw data into an accurate blood sugar reading. 

    The Problem: Needles Pain Compliance

    • Patient engagement and painful procedures do not mix well
    • The current state of the art requires needles which are painful and lead to inadequate monitoring
    • Inadequate monitoring leads to poorer outcomes and higher costs
    The Project Diabetes Solution

    • A comfortable wearable ring that provides continuous blood sugar monitoring
    • No painful procedures and no consumables
    • Empower users to manage their own health and makes it fun


    SpatialHub Update

    Spatial Hub Analytics to launch 
    "Property Intelligence in your Hand" product

    Responding to identified industry and individual needs, Spatial Hub Analytics has developed an easy to use product, designed for mobile devices, that allows users to conduct initial assessments of a property, its development opportunities, constraints and risks. 


    Designed to be used in the field by individuals, smaller developers, real estate agents and town planners, the aim is to provide "property intelligence in your hand" at an affordable price.  Today, an initial assessment report by a Town Planner of a site's potential may cost between $500-$1000.  SHA's product will provide much of the same information for $50 and within minutes rather than days. For a small developer conducting between 5-10 initial assessments a month the value of the product becomes very clear.

    Spatial Hub have worked closely with real estate agents and town planners on this product. Visit our website for two video testimonials. 


    "We are confident that FarmMap4D is now 
    on a sustainable growth curve"

    In further news, Spatial Hub has announced: "FarmMap4D Lite (FM4D Lite) was released 20th of August. The goal of FM4D Lite is to increase market presence and broaden our client base with a lower cost entry product. From this base product we will offer upsell options to our mid-range FarmMap4D Standard product and through to our premium product.

    The release has had the desired effect. New FarmMap4D subscriptions jumped by 25 in August and September. Encouragingly, the FM4D Lite release has prompted strong interest in our higher priced FM4D Standard mapping product; in August and September FM4D Standard subscriptions rose by 19 compared to 5 for FM4D Lite. FM4D Lite is a basic version of our mapping tools and is an attractive entry point at $120/year has a big potential to attract a larger market share of a much wider rural market."

    TARHF Update  (Project Triplex)

    Mandala Asset Solutions TARHF Fund III buys strong regional motel in off market transaction

    "One of the most highly rated hotels in the New England region of New South Wales has changed hands in one of the area’s biggest deals as demand for regional accommodation assets continues, driven by a surge in domestic and drive tourism.

    The Powerhouse Hotel Armidale by Rydges, widely regarded as the leading accommodation business in the region, is a short distance from the CBD and the New England Highway. The hotel, which features 57 spacious rooms and suites, a fitness centre, meeting venues and Azka Restaurant, Wine & Tapas Bar, attracts repeat local guests, corporate travellers and drive tourists.  

    The hotel was purchased by Mandala Asset Solutions through the Trinity Accommodation Regional Hospitality Fund (TARHF Fund III). Mandala is one of Australia’s biggest regional motel investors and operators, specialising in regional accommodation investments. The Armidale purchase adds to its rapidly growing portfolio of 20 properties in regional Australia. It has an estimated $150 million in assets under management under four separate funds.

    Mandala Asset Solutions Principal John Zeckendorf says the Rydges Armidale fits with their proven strategy of investing in income-producing regional accommodation-driven assets with operational and property upside.

    “We have plans to continue our strong growth in 2022. We have always preferred the regions to the major capital cities for superior returns, stability of income, low correlations of returns, less competition and far less volatility,” Mr Zeckendorf said.  

    “The regions are where most of the export wealth of Australia continues to be generated. Covid has inadvertently identified a further benefit of regional assets with the re-ascendancy of domestic tourism. We love the regions and love watching Australians (both tourists and investors) discover what has been hiding in their backyards.”

    Introducing Project CORA

    The Southern Hemisphere's Most Compelling Sports and Tourism Infrastructure Project

    CORA – “Cape Otway Road Australia” which is located adjacent to Lake Modewarre near Geelong, Victoria – plans to be the Southern Hemisphere’s new mecca for sports training and wellness tourism.

    The world’s best training facilities are all currently located in the northern hemisphere. However, the rapid growth of various sports in the Asia-Pacific region, the forthcoming Brisbane 2032 Summer Olympics and a world sports calendar that functions in opposing seasons, creates a need for a ‘best-in-class’ training venue in the southern hemisphere which CORA is destined to become.

    CORA plans to tap into high existing levels of unmet demand in the Surf Coast/Great Ocean Road area for five-star accommodation and engaging tourist activities to serve a regional market that has the highest visitation levels in Australia.

    For a detailed vision of Project CORA, please see the video link below.
