Grant Thornton returns as sponsor for the Technology Scale-up Awards

Celebrating Australian technology businesses, the Technology Scale-up Awards are now in their second year and once again sponsored by Grant Thornton.

Raj Deepan, Partner – Private Business Tax & Advisory at Grant Thornton, and judge on this year’s Awards Panel said: “Our 2022 Dealtracker Report showed technology businesses continue to dominate the Mergers & Acquisitions landscape confirming the strong acquirer appetite in this sector – particularly amongst private equity managers. The Report also highlighted tech-enabled businesses in other industries are heavily investing in innovation and digital capabilities. As technology and innovation business investment grows, we expect to see even more nominations in the Technology Scale-up Awards this year.”
