Carolyn Mee
Founder, Sound Scouts

In 2011, following a successful career in media, Carolyn set her sights on improving access to children’s hearing screening. Working in collaboration with the National Acoustic Laboratories, Sound Scouts was created.
In 2016 Carolyn was recognised as one of the AFR Westpac 100 Women of Influence for her innovative contributions to hearing health. In March 2017 Carolyn represented Australia at the SXSW Accelerator Pitch Event in Austin, Texas and won the Health and Wearables category.
In 2017 Carolyn was nominated as a Finalist in the Innovation category for the 2017 XBOX Women in Games Awards and Sound Scouts won the Data Innovation Award for Best Start Up.
While awards are fabulous Carolyn says the best prize is changing the life of a child by detecting a hearing loss that may have prevented them from realising their potential.
