On Thursday we celebrated our ranking of the 100 coolest people in Australian tech at Mojo by Luke Mangan in Sydney.

We invited Australian tech’s coolest and most interesting people along to our event.

The group partied until late, through the event and to the afterparty that followed.

Here’s a look at how the night went on.

We held our party at Mojo by Luke Mangan in Sydney.

The warehouse tapas bar is set in the heart of Mangan's global headquarters.

There was loads of food.

And drink!

There was a great buzz in the room

People were mingling and chatting about the list

While some knew each other already, others say it was a great networking opportunity for all

There was a DJ

And the chance to try out VR

Photos of those on the list were displayed during the evening

Business Insider Australia's editor-in-chief Paul Colgan kicked off proceedings with a short speech

And took the opportunity to thank the night's sponsor, Braintree, as well as the honorees on the list

Braintree's head of partnerships, Christine Rodrigues, also said a few words

Mel Perkins, Canva co-founder took the stage

She spoke of her startup journey, and how cool it is successful tech companies can actually be led by 'nice normal people who work hard'

Now, here's a cracker photo!
