These prestigious awards are named after Dr Trevor Pearcey, an outstanding Australian tech pioneer who not only built one of the world’s earliest digital computers, but also predicted the invention of the internet in an article for the Australian Journal of Science in February 1948.
Built on his legacy, the Awards recognise individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the Australian tech industry. They are unique in their design, requiring nomination for entry and then a vote by previous winners of the award to determine recipients.
Commenting on the win, Prospa Joint CEO Greg Moshal said: “We’re proud to have been commended for taking risks and making a difference. Australia’s confidence in the fintech industry is continuing to grow, and it’s exciting to be at the forefront of tech innovation and supporting entrepreneurship.
Prospa Joint CEO, Beau Bertoli said: “It’s a real honour to receive this award. We understand our small business customers and we use technology to build finance solutions that really resonate with them.”
Previous winners of the prestigious award include Richard White of WiseTech Global, Melanie Perkins of Canva, Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar of Atlassian, Leon Kamenev and Dan Katz of Menulog and Jane Lu of Showpo.
