Techboard’s Community Awards – Your favourite Startup Icon needs your support.

Techboard’s annual Startup Community Award celebrates an outstanding contribution by an individual to their local entrepreneurship community. The objective of the award is to acknowledge and celebrate individuals who work to support and improve their local startup ecosystem.

While in the past we have held this as a Western Australian initiative, this year for the first time we have opened the award up nationally - in line with Techboard's national expansion in 2017.

We have asked the 70+ members of our Panel of Experts in each state to collectively nominated individuals in their own states they deem worthy of the award. From these nominations we have put together a shortlist of 12 very worthy candidates - and it is now over to you, for a public vote!


The nominee with the most votes will be acknowledged at the Techboard 2017 National Awards event during the launch party of StartCon in Sydney on November 30th, with an award sponsored by MYOB.

Separately, the Western Australian nominee with the most votes will be acknowledged at the Techboard 2017 WA Awards  event alongside StartupWA on December 5th in Perth, with an award sponsored by the Beacham Group.

And the Nominees are:
