Shark Mitigation Systems has climbed to the top of Techboard’s latest ranking of startup companies, having spent the previous three fortnights at number two.

The recently-listed company last week secured a contract with the World Surf League, which will see its Clever Buoy technology deployed at the J-Bay Open world surfing event, and attracted significant press coverage as a result.

ResApp Health was Techboard’s second highest ranking company, after an eventful fortnight in which it was shortlisted for Best Tech IPO/ Venture Capital Raising in the Talent Unleashed Awards, and released new data which showed its diagnostic app works on adults as well as children.

The healthtech's website also showed significant improvements in rank, daily time on site and page view metrics.

Talent marketplace LiveHire came in third after its successful ASX debut following a $10m IPO.

Fourth-ranked Energy Made Clean announced delivery of New Zealand's first grid-connected commercial BESS to energy company Alpine Energy.

In addition, the company's Belmont headquarters played host to opposition leader Bill Shorten, who was in town to launch a $62 million apprenticeship plan.

The cleantech is Techboard’s highest ranking 'unlisted' company.

ResApp is joined in the top five by fellow healthtech and Curtin University spinout ePAT.

The startup announced a memorandum of understanding had been signed with UK insurance counter-fraud group Strenuus Ltd.

This is an exciting development for the facial recognition technology which until now had been focussed on assessing pain in non-communicative patients. 

The news resulted in a price surge of shares in MinQuest, who is in the process of a RTO with ePAT.
