The SmartCompany Smart50 awards celebrate the fastest growing SMEs across Australia.

Past winners and finalists have gone on to grow into some of Australia’s most iconic — and successful — businesses. Back in 2007, Atlassian was a small but growing Sydney-based software business, and placed fifth.

The past year has been a particularly tough one for SMEs in Australia. The challenges have been multifaceted, between upending how — and where — people work, the staffing and talent troubles that follow from border closures, the uncertainty of lockdowns, restrictions, and everything in between.

This is exactly why taking lessons from the Smart50 winners is so crucial. These businesses exemplified resilience, and overcame many challenges to achieve growth against the odds.

In the Smart50 Awards handbook, you’ll hear from the founders of InstantScripts, the business that nabbed the coveted #1 spot on the 2021 Smart50 list, and our six Smart50 Award winners:

  • Community Hero: The Creative Co-operative
  • Eco Warrior: Your Food Collective
  • SmartCompany Plus Innovator Award: Pickstar
  • Retail Champion: Muscle Nation
  • Rising Star: Mr Yum

We hope you will take inspiration from these Smart50 stories, and remember, after a tough year, you, and your business can only be stronger after dealing with adversity.
