Shark Mitigation Systems is this fortnight’s highest trending startup, having spent the previous three fortnights at number two on Techboard’s ranking. The recently listed company secured a contract with the World Surf League, which will see its Clever Buoy technology deployed at the J-Bay Open world surfing event, and attracted significant press coverage as a result.
ResApp Health is our second highest ranking company, after an eventful fortnight in which it was shortlisted for Best Tech IPO/ Venture Capital Raising in the Talent Unleashed Awards, and released new data which showed its diagnostic app works on adults as well as children. The healthtech’s website also showed significant improvements in rank, daily time on site and page view metrics.
