Throat Scope was founded by CEO Jennifer Holland in 2009 after a trip to the doctors with her sick 15-month-old child. The doctor asked her to restrain her child as he pried open the child’s mouth with a wooden tongue depressor in one hand, and a penlight in the other. This traumatic experience led to the device you see today and has inspired more diagnostic solutions within the business to aid in examinations both in home and in healthcare environments.
Jennifer’s passion lies in inventing, designing and developing medical products that will revolutionise the healthcare industry. Her first invention was Throat Scope, which has had outstanding success across the globe and began as the foundation of Holland Healthcare.
Jennifer began her working life as a financial accountant and her career in this role spanned for 6 years. Throat Scope Pty Ltd was established in 2010 after creating Throat Scope.
Throat Scope was the recipient of ‘What’s Your Big Idea Queensland?’ in 2011, which included a $50 000 prize money from the Queensland government. This allowed Jennifer to develop and patent Throat Scope and have several working prototypes made. In 2015, Jennifer and Throat Scope were featured on Shark Tank Australia. Jennifer secured investment from Steve Baxter and this exposure propelled the business. In October 2015, Throat Scope was launched into the Australian retail and healthcare markets. Throat Scope broke a retail record with a company, which saw the product signed in seven days. Jennifer has since negotiated several lucrative distribution deals with both domestic and international companies.
Jennifer has been awarded several awards for her hard work and determination which include, a finalist in the Lake Macquarie Citizen of the Year 2017, Lake Macquarie Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 and a finalist in the NSW Business Chamber Young Executive of the Year 2016. Jennifer also actively participates in speaking and networking events across the state.
