StartCon, Techboard and MYOB come together to present the Techboard 2017 Awards

Techboard’s inaugural national annual celebration of Trending Australian Startups and Young Tech Companies, the Techboard 2017 awards will be taking place in Sydney on the evening 30 November 2017 at the Launch Party for StartCon, Australia’s largest Startup Conference and is sponsored by MYOB.

Techboard Co-founder and Chief Startup Evangelist, Peter van Bruchem outlined, “We are very pleased to be partnering with Cheryl Mack and her team at StartCon. This partnership gives Techboard an excellent opportunity to ensure that our first National Techboard Awards is accessible to attendees from across Australia which reflects the national focus we have been implementing since January this year. MYOB’s support helps make what we are trying to achieve with Techboard possible.”

Cheryl Mack, Head of StartCon, Australia’s largest Startup Conference explained, “Together with Techboard, we are showcasing Australian startups and young tech companies and their successes, which are tracked throughout the year. By celebrating and sharing these successes, we are aiming for Australian investors, policy makers, consumers and future entrepreneurs to sit up and take notice. Global changes fuelled by disruption from the startup ecosystem impact us all. We want to ensure more disruption comes from Australian startups, to benefit the local economy and secure the success of future generations. With the help of companies like MYOB, we feel confident in achieving this within our eco-system.”

Kristen Holden Startup Manager from MYOB, the Gold Sponsor for the StartCon Conference outlined MYOB’s rationale for its support of Startups and the Techboard Awards:
