Tech23 companies announced for 2015
Spanning big data to medtech; artificial intelligence to renewable energy; many of the Tech23 in 2015 have the potential to change the way existing markets operate.
The seventh annual Tech23 2015 is a national celebration of Australian innovation, with founders hailing from across the country and boasting connections with Australia’s leading R&D organisations. The 23 young tech companies will present for 5 minutes to 400+ potential customers, partners and investors. This year, Tech23 is continuing to encourage the collaborations required for innovation to happen.
“Everyone knows that Australia needs to improve the engagement between business and R&D to unleash our innovation pipeline. Tech23 is all about encouraging our informal networks – so collaboration can increase between industry, R&D organisations and startups.” said Rachel Slattery, Director of SlatteryIT, manager of the annual event.
Attendees of Tech23 will be able to meet and chat to the people driving the entrepreneurial and commercialisation initiatives of our R&D organisations on “Innovation Island” during the breaks and lunch. R&D organisations involved include: Australian National University, ATP Innovations, CSIRO, Curtin University, Data61, University of Melbourne, University of Technology, University of Sydney and the University of Wollongong.
Australian tech superstars Topaz Conway; Larry Marshall; Daniel Petre; Elaine Stead; David Spence and Adrian Turner are among the many Industry Leaders who will question and give advice to the 23 companies on the day.
