Techboard is pleased to present its latest startup and young tech funding report for the quarter ending 31 March 2019. This quarter on the lead up to the Australian Federal Election we decided to do more analysis of our numbers than usual for our 'minor' reports and we identified a number of trends that may provide some cause for concern.
Techboard is pleased to present its Report into funding secured by Australian Startup and Young Tech Companies in the quarter ending 31 December 2018. During the December quarter 2018 Techboard identified over 160 funding events across a broad range of funding types ranging from accelerator program funding, acquisitions, equity crowdfunding, major debt instruments (sometimes called venture debt), grants (including awards and prizes), initial coin offerings, initial public offerings and reverse takeovers, ASX placements and private investment (including angel, VC and other large-scale private investment).
The report reveals that Australian Startups and young tech companies received $1.066B in funding during the December 2018 quarter. The quarter was strong in general with a small reduction in funding from the September Q 2018, but a significant increase from the Dec Q 2017 ($762m) by almost 40%.
Techboard is pleased to present its first Annual Funding Report, the most comprehensive annual funding report covering the Australian Startup and Young Tech Ecosystem ever produced. In this report we reveal that Australian startups and young tech companies secured over $3.5billion dollars of funding during the 2017/2018 financial year.
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.
Techboard is pleased to present its funding report covering funding events confirmed in the March 2018 quarter, involving startups and young tech companies which are eligible for a listing on Techboard.

Techboard would especially like to thank Melbourne Angels, Brisbane Angels, Gold Coast Angels and Perth Angels for their on-going collaboration and all people who submitted information to us via our new Funding Event submission form and companies who announced their funding events on Techboard using our announcements platform.

Since releasing our Australian Startup and Young Tech Company Funding Report for the September Quarter 2017 earlier this month we have been experimenting with some new tools to better enable our readers to extract useful insights from our data. We have set up some new interactive charts and table which enable readers to interrogate the data by state, company category or investment type. Have a play and let us know what you think.
