            Guyzzzz… These lists coming from Smart companies are 75% biased and paid lists. for an example this list is fully filled with their advertisers http://www.smartcompany.com.au/marketing/63837-australias-best-business-blogs-2016/

          • Eloise Keating

            Hi Don. This list is from a report compiled by H2 Ventures and Investec. The other list you have linked to was compiled by the SmartCompany editorial team and the none of the blogs on the list advertise with SmartCompany. Any sponsored content on SmartCompany is clearly labelled as “Sponsored Content”. Thanks, Eloise

  • Mario

    You realize New Zealand is not in Australia, right?

  • Lou Donnelly-Davey

    You missed Timely – NZ SaaS startup

  • Pooja

    How many of these are in Melbourne alone? Is there a seperate list?

  • Michael

    Has Ingogo in here but not GoCatch?

  • Feels a lot like Australia claiming Crowded House all over again.

    I reckon we can stick to Australian companies for the Top 50 Australian tech companies. I think we have enough great aussie tech companies to let NZ claim their own.

    How many like Canva are actually outsourcing to places like the Philippines? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pIb0ALL88M
