New Industries Fund: WA Innovator of the Year

The Innovator of the Year awards outstanding Western Australian companies that have developed an innovative product, technology or service.

The Western Australian Government is committed to raising the profile of innovation in WA and supporting the delivery of government initiatives to advance the growth of our innovation-based industries.

The WA Innovator of the Year program has showcased innovative and entrepreneurial individuals, businesses and creative minds since 2006. The program has benefited many of those who have participated as well as the broader community of WA.

The program is a valuable initiative, which provides support to innovators and entrepreneurs across WA.

2020 WA Innovator of the Year

Regrettably, due to COVID-19, the Innovator of the Year program was postponed to 2021.

Postponement of the program was required due to uncertainty about the length and extent of the impacts of the virus, and the high level of person-to-person interaction in the program through its networking functions and commercialisation training.

The program will resume in 2021 when we look forward to engaging with the Innovator of the Year community once again to further this important work.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank the many generous sponsors and other valuable community members for their understanding of this action, and their vital and continued support.
