Business Insider has extended the nomination period for the Australian Tech 100.

In the new year, we will name the Business Insider Australia Tech 100, a list of the people who have made the biggest contributions to technology in the country in 2017.

And we’d like to hear who you think should be on the list.

We want you to drop us a line with the names of people you think have done the coolest stuff in and for Australia’s digital community in the past 12 months.

For each nomination, let us know what they’ve done that you think is cool.

What does “cool” mean?

  • They may have launched an innovative startup
  • Or perhaps they raised capital
  • Maybe they recruited some heavy hitters
  • They could have gone public
  • Their company may have been acquired by a bigger fish
  • Otherwise they may have made a big impact on the Australian startup community
  • And maybe they accomplished something amazing in their careers

Nominations close on Thursday December 21.

Email your nominations to: mail [at] Make sure you send through the nominee’s name and company, as well as what it is they have achieved over the past year.

We look forward to hearing from you.
