The Australian Technologies Competition is an internationally recognised national awards and international growth support program for technology scaleups. 

It comprises a three stage national competition for sector awards and Australian Technology Company of the Year, high calibre mentoring from successful technology entrepreneurs and senior corporate executives, an International Growth Masterclass and access to partner and investor connection events. 

The Competition, now in its 12th year, is sponsored by the Federal, NSW and Victorian Governments and industry partners, including MTPConnect.

The 12 categories of the Competition reflect the enormous capabilities of the Australian technology sector - and the Award Categories relevant to the MTP sector include Healthtech, Digital Transformation and Social Impact.

More than 250 high growth companies that have previously reached the semifinals or finals read like a Who’s Who of Australian ‘deep’ technology. They include Agridigital, BindiMaps, BluGlass, Calix, CancerAid, CIM Enviro, Fleet Space, Gilmour Space, RedEye, Sound Scouts, StormSeal, SwitchDin, Wattwatchers and many more. 

In 2021, the winner in the Medtech and Pharma category and Overall Winner was Coviu’s Telehealth platform (a spin out from CSIRO’s Data61). Listen to an interview with Coviu's CEO Dr Silvia Pfeiffer on the MTPConnect Podcast about Coviu's experience as a participant in the ATC and the benefits the company gained. And read more about last year's finalists.
