Deputy was last month’s second highest trending startup nationally, and New South Wales’ top ranked, having raised $33 million in funding from US venture capital firm OpenView.

The startup, founded in Sydney in 2008, provides workforce scheduling software used by clients including McDonalds, Amazon and NASA. The funds raised have been ear-marked for international expansion.

Nuheara was ranked third. The ASX-listed company presented its intelligent IQbuds at CES in Las Vegas, and announced it had received US certification for its flagship product.

The company also saw strong social media engagement over the period, strong share price growth, and received a nomination from our panel of experts.

Asset management SaaS provider AssetOwl, ranked fourth, completed its $3.5 million reverse takeover of Regalpoint in early January.

The acquiring company has renamed and is now listed on the ASX under the AO1 ticker code. The company is led by Melbourne-based CEO Giuseppe Di Franco.

Dr Fraser is a Program Science Director in the CRCSI and a Professorial Fellow at the University of Melbourne.  

According to Dr Fraser, “this assessment of the Spookfish SP3 aerial camera system and its associated photogrammetric data processing pipeline has demonstrated that design specifications for metric accuracy are being met, and indeed surpassed.”
