A diverse range of startups make up the 23 tech companies that are set to compete at Tech23 2014.
The conference has been the launch pad for a number of successful Australian startup entrepreneurs, including Local Measure founder Jonathan Barouch, BugHerd founders Alan Downie and Matt Milosavljevic and bigtincan founder David Keane.
The 23 startups operate in everything from cloud services to robotics and e-health, and include founders with a diverse range of backgrounds from across the country, according to Slattery IT director Rachel Slattery.
“People are innovating across Australia, and it’s great to see the breadth of the nation represented amongst the clever technologies being presented at Tech23 this year,” she says.
“When Tech23 started six years ago, it was all about creating connections. It’s great to see this happening even more now. As Tech23 alumni companies and founders, industry leaders, sponsors and supporters go out of their way to help the next wave of innovative companies.”
Tech23 takes place in Sydney on October 23. The 23 tech companies will each present five minute presentations before being questioned by industry leaders Michelle Deaker, Leni Mayo, David Spence and Richard White. For more information, visit www.tech23.com.au.
