Why Tech – the Australian Tech explosion

Technology has been a standout sector in Australia across the last decade. Tech companies are raising record levels of capital via IPO (Initial Public Offering) on the ASX and through Venture Capital.

A number of ASX listed technology companies have in excess of an AUD$1 billion market cap such as Afterpay, Xero, and Wisetech global etc, and the entire value of tech stocks in its exchange stands at about $68 billion - that’s twice the amount of two years ago when Australia began ramping up efforts in the space. Well known ASX listed technology companies headquartered in Adelaide include Codan, Ellex, Buddyco, MGM wireless, and Alcidion.

Max will share exclusive industry insight on the key trends ASX's tech companies; and how Australia has become the global technology hub for tech firms in the Asia-Pacific region.
