If we are to move toward a resilient future, we must realise our sum is greater than our parts. We must come together as a nation to celebrate and uplift the innovation we have in our very own backyards!
With the goal to adapt and respond to an increasingly uncertain world, Tech23 2020 will bring together those that can make great things happen. Now, more than ever, is the time to amplify the innovation that has the power to shape our future.
“Tech23 is all about helping people make connections that matter. Connections between researchers, entrepreneurs, organisations and investors and governments that can support, nurture and buy the innovations that will build a better tomorrow.”
– Rachel Slattery, Director, Tech23
Coming at you in every which way – the Tech23 Deeptech Festival 2020 will feature a smorgasbord of thought-provoking content and online, distributed and face-to-face events!

Innovation is so important and the NSW Government is keen to support people with great ideas; their ability to solve big problems will help grow our economy and create future jobs.”
– Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres
