The Governor of Victoria Startup Awards are supported by Her Excellency the Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria, and will be presented at Government House in early 2022. The awards will recognise winners in five categories:

These include:

  • Best Newcomer for firms less than three years old;
  • Startup of the Year for firms less than ten years old;
  • Scaleup of the Year for those that have had a minimum Series A in the last four years;
  • Investor of the Year as nominated by the founder community; and
  • Ecosystem Hero of the Year featuring a People’s Choice and Experts’ Choice.

Voting Process

The awards for Best Newcomer, Startup of the Year and Scaleup of the Year categories will be selected from a shortlist of the top 30 Victorian startups based on criteria that includes: money raised, age of firm and job creation or number of employees.

This data will come from LaunchVic’s startup database, powered by Dealroom.

Shortlisted applicants will then be invited to provide a written submission to be assessed by an external expert panel.
