“It’s fantastic that the InnovationAus Awards have focused so much on acknowledging the tremendous contributions to Australia and the global economy that are coming from the local innovation sector. It’s a first of its kind. I was grateful and humbled to win the Australian Hero Award in 2021 and we’re even prouder to have become a sponsor since then.”
