Techboard Company Traction Report September 2017 – the Month in Australian Startup and Tech

Welcome to Techboard’s Company Traction Report for September 2017. In these reports we highlight traction by Australian startups and young technology companies, broken into the three headings of News coverage, Milestones and Funding events. We collect this data as a major input into the monthly Techboard Ranking.

This month we have news mentions, milestones and Funding events for 316 Australian startups and tech companies. The companies are listed in the order in which they appeared in the September Techboard Ranking.

  • Since last month we've added a further 100+ companies - we're now profiling 1,680 companies.
  • Among other metrics, we captured 769 press mentions (globally) of Australian companies, 221 milestones, 57 funding milestones, over 27,000 tweets and 10,000 Facebook posts, over 300 iTunes apps and 200 Google Play apps, and employee counts at 1,080 companies.
  • More than half of the top ten are ASX listed, including those newly listed during the month (Titomic and Schrole). 91 (or 5%) of our total companies are ASX listed. The top performing (share price wise) ASX company in August was GetSwift, up 145%.
  • Four acquisitions occurred during the month: NuSkope (Superloop), OpenLearning (Prestariang), Babyology (Kinderling Kids radio) and ServTech Global which sold its rent roll business to Summit Development Corporation and Housemart Real Estate.
