Dr Sarah Crowe,



Great organisation, fantastic speakers, both in terms of quality and diversity.  As a woman, I found it very encouraging to see so many amazing women in high positions speaking honestly and openly about their business experiences.

Wayne Liubinskas,

Just going through the process is valuable.  It forces you to take the time to articulate your business and your own plans.  It's a comprehensive experience and well worth the effort.

Bernadette Schwerdt, Synthetic Data Pty Ltd (VIC)

Ten out of 10!  The high-quality of the presenters, the well-organised nature of the program and the friendliness in which the entire operation was conducted was fantastic!

Cameron McKenzie, ASPIRE


The cohort was fantastic! The Competition not only changed our mindset but gave us the confidence to push to new markets and validate what we set out to achieve.

Matt Smith,

The Competition

A seven month journey starting...
6 April 2021

The Australian Technologies Competition is Australia's national Competition, late-stage accelerator and partnerships program designed to identify and accelerate homegrown scaleups with global potential.

Sponsored by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy & Resources (DISER), Industry Growth Centres, the Victorian Government's Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) alongside the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), the Competition will mark its 11th year in 2021.  For the past two years, the Victorian Government has been the proud host state of the Competition's national finals & awards, and again serves as host state and major sponsor in 2021.


From the time of its inauguration, the Competition has created an alumni pool of over 230+ semi finalists and finalists, many of whom have had significant international success.  The Competition brings experienced entrepreneurs, business builders, angel investors, venture capital funds, commercialisation experts, leading corporates and government representatives together with founders, in a collaborative coaching environment. It has a strong focus on equipping founders with the skills, contacts and resources to develop and manage high growth companies in challenging international markets.
