- About Zilch
Zilch Technologies helps companies of all sizes bring their supply chain processes into the twenty-first century by cutting costs and improving performance. The company’s flagship product, the Zilch Data Warehouse, is a data warehouse that uses big data to help companies improve their sales and profitability.

In 2013 Philip Belamant launched Zilch, an online platform that provides supply chain visibility. It helps companies understand where their products are unavailable, which can help them improve business processes and enhance customer experiences by identifying issues before they become a problem.
- Philip Belamant Business Strategy
Philip Belamant’s business strategy focuses on his disruptive product offering instead of a traditional sales and marketing approach. The Zilch Data Warehouse (ZDW) was created in 2013 after Philip Belamant’s father retired from managing an Australian dairy company. In retirement, he wanted to spend more time with his family, so he took over the family business of supplying milk and butter to local supermarkets and online retailers.
The award will help Philip Belamant’s company, Zilch Technologies become a household name, and he will be able to expand further his sales in the Middle East and North American markets. Philip Belamant is a successful businessman, and his business acumen has propelled him to become an Entrepreneur of the Year.
