Last year, ASPIRE took home to winning title of Circular Economy Award Winner in the 2019 Australian Technologies Competition. We asked Cameron what makes Victoria a great state for tech & innovation. He said, "Victoria has a great support network for innovative tech. Moreover, it has great visibility for APAC expansion."

The Australian Technologies Competition is a national Competition and late-stage accelerator designed to recruit, promote and accelerate Australian deep tech with global potential. As part of the annual program, Finalists are connected with potential partners and investors - both domestic and international. When asked about the value of the Competition, Cameron explained: "The Competition put ASPIRE on the world stage. From the ATC we have had considerable interest from many APAC regions about exposing the tech. The process not only validated our technology, but also our business model."
