|Australian Technologies Competition
||06 May 14
Competition opens 13 March, closes 6 May
The Australian Technologies Competition is looking for Australia's best technology companies. The competition assesses, mentors and promotes these companies providing a uniquely Australian take on the future. The competition is seeking to mentor and profile emerging technologies that can enhance industry efficiency and competitiveness in terms of output (finished product) and the physical resources used.
Companies can be delivering technologies and services that address pollution, waste treatment and energy storage, new ways of looking at energy efficiency, building materials, transportations systems, public utilities and much more. The Competition was first run in 2011 as a way to identify the best ways of promoting and helping emerging technology companies.
Business Accelerator Program - The Top 30 Entries will win an intensive mentoring program on commercialisation, funding and pitching.
International Market Entry Acceleration Program - The Top 30 Entries will be able to attend this Program to help drive export readiness and growth. The Program will be delivered partly in Australia. The award winners will also be partially funded on a trade mission to China to seek opportunities for sales, finance and collaboration.
Global Competition - Both the Overall and Industry Award Winners will represent Australia in a number of global competitions to provide additional exposure and opportunities.
The 2014 competition is open to technologies that support efficiency improvements in the industries such as the following: Built environment (property, construction, real estate, etc); Energy (oil, gas, renewables, etc); Water; Food and beverage; Mining and minerals; Manufacturing (chemicals, automotive, metals, etc)
The technology solutions are valid if they can show that their commercialisation would deliver an improvement in industry efficiency and competitiveness in terms of product output and resources used. Resources used can include, but are not limited to: Labour; Water; Soils; Minerals; Chemicals; Energy; Wastes (being avoided pollution to land, water and air).
To enter you must be an Australian-based SME company with less than 100 employees.
In addition, you must own or have beneficial use of any intellectual property necessary to commercialise your technology solution.
There is no limit on maximum investment raised.
