EDITED: the FY 17/18 Techboard funding report is now available.
The 2017/18 financial year is drawing to a close and the Techboard team is working towards its first Annual Funding Report covering funding events by Australian startups and young tech companies confirmed during the 2017/18 financial year. This will be the most comprehensive annual funding report covering the Australian Startup and Tech Ecosystem ever. We want to make sure we cover as many funding events as possible so we are calling on the support and assistance from companies, advisors, investors/funders and others to help supplement our dataset.
Our funding reports cover accelerators, acquisitions, angel/seed, crowdfunding (reward + equity), venture debt, grant/prize, initial coin offerings, initial public offerings and reverse take overs, ASX placements and venture capital/large private investment. Our very first national annual funding report will include a full overview of the year in Startup and Tech funding in Australia, include a detailed analysis all funding events in the reports published for the year to date and any others that are discovered as well as breakdowns by period, funding type, category/sector and state.
I think this is going to be a big report. The period isn't yet finished and we have a fair bit of work ahead of us to gather and process all the data but based on what we have seen in the FY so far it looks like the total amount of funding in the report may even exceed $3B for the year.
