About the Competition
Now in its eighth year, the Australian Technologies Competition serves as the global launch pad for technology companies across key growth industries.
In collaboration with the Department of Industry, Innovation & Science and the Australian Government’s Industry Growth Centres, the Competition attracts, mentors and promotes the brightest minds and technology businesses across Australia’s priority sectors.
In 2018, entrants will be eligible for one of nine awards, supported by partners from across Australia:
• Cyber Security Award
• Energy Resources Award
• New Energy Award
• Food & Agribusiness Award
• MedTech & Pharma Award
• Mining Technologies Award
• Advanced Manufacturing Award
• Smart Cities Award
• Australian Technology Company of the Year
In 2017, the Competition received more than 120 entries, helping both new and mature businesses to take the next step in their commercialisation process and unlock new opportunities. Over the life of the Competition, the Program has attracted 930 applicants, recognising 196 finalists and 39 award winners.
Past winner, Giles Bourne, CEO of BluGlass Limited said: “You don’t need to win the competition to benefit from the exposure and mentoring that this opportunity provides, if you are a technology innovator, you must enter!”
To qualify, entrants must be an Australian registered SME company with less than 100 employees. In addition, they must own or have beneficial use of any intellectual property necessary to commercialise their technology solution. There is no limit on maximum investment raised.
