Over the course of 2017, Techboard has been tracking metrics on Australian Startups and publishing monthly rankings that rank companies on the extent to which the metrics indicate they are trending or gaining mindshare. For the Techboard 2017 Awards we compiled a special ranking which included all ranking scores for companies we had been tracking. For the National Awards we applied certain weightings to the scores in recognition that Techboard did not have a full years data on all companies it had been tracking. For the Western Australian Awards we did not apply any weightings due to having more complete data. We are now pleased to release the list of the top 100 trending companies for 2017 utilised for the National Awards.
On 5 December 2017 leading blockchain-powered peer-to-peer renewable energy marketplace, Power Ledger, was named as the top trending startup in Western Australia at the Techboard 2017 WA Awards and online platform for managing loan agreements, Credi was named as Highest Trending Up and Coming Company.
