In case you missed it…the INCITE Awards will be holding a Digital Conference on Wednesday 14 July, from 6pm – 7.30pm.
The goals of the Digital Conference are to:
- Showcase the Finalists for the 30th INCITE Awards via pre-recorded 30 seconds explainer videos of their technology innovation to a local, national and global audience, and create excitement prior to the Awards Presentation Night on 23 July.
- Create discussions around the theme of the 30th INCITE Awards: “WA Tech: Diversifying our Economy and Connecting our Community”
Last year’s INCITE Awards Digital Conference attracted audiences from around Australia, South-East Asia, the US and the UK, which also resulted in a US investment interest for our 29th Startup of the Year winner – SpaceDraft. You can still check out the 2020 Digital Event here.
With a focus on showcasing and supporting local tech innovation, we strongly believe that a Digital Conference will help highlight the work of our finalists and put WA on the map in this industry. With that in mind, let’s have a look at all the excitement that’s going to happen for the 30th INCITE Awards Digital Conference.
