The Hon. Philip Dalidakis, Minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy
Philip Dalidakis is Victoria’s Minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy, Investment and Trade and Small Business in the Andrews Labor Government. He was elected as the member for Southern Metropolitan in November 2014 and was appointed to Cabinet in July 2015.
Philip has a bold vision of Victoria as the number one tech and startup destination in the Asia Pacific region and, since his appointment to Cabinet, has worked tirelessly to strengthen Victoria’s global reputation as Australia’s top tech city.
Across the Ministry, Philip has overseen the implementation of LaunchVic, which has been tasked with developing Victoria’s globally-connected startup sector and the transformation of the historic Goods Shed North into a leading innovation hub. Coinciding with his role as Minister for Trade and Investment, Philip has been instrumental in supporting leading global startups and tech companies not only to establish a presence in Victoria, but to have their APEC or Australian New Zealand headquarters in Melbourne.
Philip has a Master of Commerce from UNSW as well as a double degree in Arts (Politics and Thai Language) and Business (Management) from Monash University. He is also a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management and a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
