- July 8, 2019 < 1 MIN READ

If your business is doing something cool, it could be worth $20,000 and give you the chance to rub shoulders with government and corporate leaders at the Australia New Zealand Leadership Forum (ANZLF).

Consulting firm Accenture is backing the inaugural ANZLF Trans-Tasman Innovation and Growth Awards, which offers a $20,000 prize to each of four businesses, as well as an invite to the summit in both countries in February and May next year.

CSIRO Chairman David Thodey will chair the judging panel.

“We’re seeking Australian businesses that have a track record of collaborating with diverse networks,” he said.

“We’re looking for a clear demonstration of innovation, impact and growth potential.”

Applicants must have already secured investor funding and have a market cap under A$100 million, but you need to hurry if you want to enter because applications close this Friday, July 12.

How to enter is available on the Accenture website here.

Accenture Australia chairman Bob Easton said the awards are a huge opportunity for emerging businesses.

“The ability for the winners to tap into the expertise of the best and brightest in business and government here and in New Zealand is invaluable,” he said.

“The summits will feature masterclasses focusing on helping emerging businesses in areas where they often struggle, such as investor relations, tax, wellbeing and approaches to scaling up funding.”

The top 10 applicants will be announced in late July and the winners selected in August.
