UK Tech Rocketship Awards – Australia and New Zealand

The inaugural Tech Rocketship Awards will connect Australia and New Zealand’s fast-rising tech stars with the UK’s world-leading growth eco-system of VCs, advisors, customers and support networks.

The UK Department for International Trade (DIT), with support from the Australian British Chamber of Commerce (ABCC) and Grant Thornton, will take eight determined, globally scalable companies across a range of tech sectors, on a specially curated trip to the UK in early 2019 to supercharge their UK expansion plans.

The Tech Rocketship Awards is open to established Australian and New Zealand scale-ups that deliver innovative, technology-led solutions across a wide spectrum of industries.

Award Categories:

  • Economy & Digital Security
  • Tech for an Ageing Society (Life Sciences)
  • The AI & Data Revolution
  • The Future of Mobility
  • Clean Growth (Cleantech)
  • Feeding the Nation (Agritech)
  • Connected Consumers & Creativity
  • GREAT Tech for Change Award

Applications close 26 November 2018.


DIT and Grant Thornton will be hosting a series of workshops with ABCC in major cities in November. This is an opportunity to learn more about the thriving UK tech eco-system, to hear first-hand from those who have already successfully expanded to the UK and to find out more about the Tech Rocketship Awards.
