Power Ledger remains in the top spot on Techboard’s ranking table for the second fortnight running, having announced its first commercial deal for the provision of its technology platform.

The startup, which allows consumers to trade surplus electricity directly with other consumers, has signed a deal with New Zealand network operator Vector, which will see it reaching 500 solar households, schools and community groups in Auckland.

The company scored high in mindshare with strong social media engagement, press coverage and web rankings, and received several nominations from Techboard’s panel of Experts.

Second most trending company of the fortnight was migme. The social media company announced it had raised $10 million from a range of investors including Foxconn and the ‘Instagram of China’, Meitu.

Shark Mitigation Systems, ranked third, was in the press yet again, following its negotiations to supply the state government with at least five Clever Buoys.

The shark detection technology uses sonar technology to detect shark-sized objects in coastal waters.

Two startups in the top 20 were winners (western region) of EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award, SEQTA (ranked fourth) and DownUnder GeoSolutions (ranked 16th).

SEQTA provides schools with a learning management system which allows the school to communicate key information with students and parents.

Another award winner was respiratory disease solution ResApp Health (ranked fifth).

The health-tech was one of five grand final winners of the Talent Unleashed awards, and will receive a trip to Silicon Valley where they will attend a technology conference and spend one-on-one time with Steve Wozniak at an exclusive reception.
