Australian Technologies Competition prepares for another outstanding year celebrating homegrown tech in 2020

From bushfires to floods, coronavirus to global market meltdowns - the start of 2020 has been a challenge for us all.  The silver lining though, is Australia's ingenuity and resilience.  We're a country of incredible problem solvers, scientists, engineers, change-makers and innovators.  Now more so than ever, it's critical for members of Australia's innovation ecosystem to come together in support of Australia's most promising scaleups.

ATC's 10th Anniversary
In 2020, the Australian Technologies Competition will mark its 10th Anniversary; ten years of championing the trailblazers and entrepreneurs who are driven to commercialise their innovative tech-based solutions.  Our mission has been the same from the very start - that is - to recognise Australian technology scaleups and SMEs with global potential and connect them to the partners and investors they need to build a successful international business.

In 2020, we have 10 categories, including many that address the
current challenges of our time, including health, clean energy, recycling, water and food security.  We believe that Australian scaleups will play an important role in national recovery and that they deserve all of the support they can get. 

If you know someone who should throw their hat in the ring this year - please forward them this email and encourage them to apply when doors open in early April.  It's free to enter and takes less than 15 minutes to complete an entry online. 

Looking ahead
The Australian Technologies Competition is a seven-month long program and there are multiple events in the program.  We've noted some key dates below so you can mark these in your diary.  In recognition of the times, we will have a virtual alternative for those that don’t materialise as physical get-togethers. 

Impact Technology Ventures is proud to curate this program in support of Australia's best and we look forward to your involvement in 2020 and beyond!

Best regards,
