Announcing the Finalists and Winners of the Inaugural Technology Scale-up Awards

The finalists and winners of the inaugural program were announced earlier today via a virtual awards ceremony hosted on LinkedIn – watch it here.

The awards celebrate disruptive Australian technology businesses that demonstrate high rates of growth, as well as innovation, integrity, contribution to community and sustainable growth.

With the impacts of COVID-19 bringing further lockdowns and on-going challenges in 2021, Chairman of the Technology Scale-up Awards, Nick Humphrey acknowledged the strain current restrictions are putting on so many businesses, teams, and individuals at this time.

“Much of the awards program has taken place during this current situation, and we have been very impressed with the calibre of nominations from technology companies who have shown continued growth, resilience and innovation in such uncertain times. In fact, the dramatic shift in underlying conditions caused by the global pandemic has proven to be an evolutionary moment for many of our nominees, who have looked to capitalise on new market dynamics by using technology and software to solve very human problems”.
