Design Entrepreneur Awards
Powered by CtechBA
Entry to the 2016 Design Entrepreneur Awards is now officially open.
Organised by CtechBA and Good Design Australia, the new Design Entrepreneur Awards is an innovative commercialisation platform open to designers, engineers and entrepreneurs who have an innovative idea for a new product or service that is at a pre-commercialisation stage. The Awards were created to inspire the next generation of design entrepreneurs and to provide an innovative platform to help bring new ideas and businesses to market.
The Awards were established on the foundation that technology innovations can improve people’s lives. We passionately believe that it is only through effective commercialisation that these innovations will reach the market and make a difference to our world.
Entries close 15 April 2016.
