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.

Applications close 26 November 2018.
