This year, we are proud to announce Austrade as a Platinum Sponsor of Croc Pitch 2019.

The Landing Pads program, as part of the National Innovation and Science Agenda, is dedicated to supporting Australian technology startups and scaleups looking to go global. The program assists scaleups to minimise the time, cost and risk of going global and provides an immersive rapid learning in-market experience for founders.

Through the 5 Australian Landing Pads and Austrade’s global network, we help scaleups access market intelligence, advice and the right networks in their target markets and across global innovation hubs.

One of the key objectives of the Landing Pads program in 2019-2020 is to engage, support and empower startups and scaleups across Northern Territory. We are working with local and territory governments to build connections with local innovation ecosystems and partners to provide educational and engagement opportunities and reach more founders and empower them on their international expansion through Austrade’s global networks.

We see CrocPitch 2019 as just one way we can support the Northern Territory’s upcoming startups and scaleups. These are companies who are shaping Australia’s future; and we are excited to be supporting them.
