The cleantech captured significant mindshare across the press and social media.

Zelda Therapeutics, ranked second, raised $4m through an over-subscribed reverse takeover. The company is researching medicinal cannabis usage.

eBev, ranked third, is also the third WA startup to complete a fundraising this fortnight, following completion of a $1.5 million angel round from private investors (including the Sydney Angels).

The company has built a wholesale beverage marketplace which allows venues to order and manage their stock, with an initial focus on wine.

eBev originated in Perth, but chose to focus on the Sydney market first, and now hopes to expand interstate following the capital raising.

The company also saw large gains in its website's global ranking over the fortnight.

Fastbrick Robotics, ranked fourth, saw significant news coverage and a continued increase in its share price, following its previously announced agreement to deploy its brick-laying technology in Perth, and the release of video animations demonstrating the innovation.

BrainChip Holdings is ranked fifth, having just announced a deal to provide its machine learning technology to a US casino in Las Vegas - with a second casino to be announced soon.

The company saw an improvement to its website rank and strong press coverage, and received a nomination from Techboard's panel of experts.

Other noteworthy startup accomplishments this fortnight include many companies being shortlisted for various awards, including Tap into SafetyHealthEngineNorwood Systems, BuildingApprovals.com and KinChip Systems

Yabble launched for the school holidays, Alcidion Corporation signed an agreement with the Northern Territory Department of Health, and Bombora Natural Energy announced plans to list on the ASX and a deal with UIL Energy
