Australia’s 2021 Lift Off Awards

Australia’s Lift Off Awards, which celebrate gender and cultural diversity in tech, will take place on 22 July 2021 in the Ballroom at YBF Melbourne, the Central Hub of YBF Sydney, and online for those who are internationally-based or unable to join in person.

What started as an awards platform to celebrate gender and cultural diversity in fintech has evolved into encompassing an awards platform that acknowledges leadership across a wide variety of tech verticals. New awards categories for 2021 include ‘Diversity & Inclusion Tech Leader of the Year’, ‘Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Tech Startup or Scaleup of the Year’, ‘Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning Startup or Scaleup of the Year’ and ‘Cybersecurity Startup or Scaleup of the Year’.

Partners of the event include Lander & Rogers, Tyro, OVHcloud, AirTree, Girls in Tech Australia, Impact Investment Partners and Keynoteworthy.

100% of profits from booking fees will be donated to educational programs for girls.
