Sustainable energy retailer Amber Electric and medtech Seer Medical have been named joint winners of Victorian Startup of the Year in the inaugural Governor of Victoria Startup Awards, announced last night.
The Awards, supported by Linda Dessau, Governor of Victoria, celebrate the state’s leaders and investors in the startup sector.
She hosted the winners at an intimate reception at Government House on Wednesday night.
LaunchVic CEO Dr Kate Cornick said the awards were created to recognise the people behind the success of the local ecosystem.
“Victoria’s early stage startup sector value has grown by $3 billion in just three years,” she said.
“These are the innovators building the economy of the future with products and services that genuinely make a difference in the lives of Victorians.
