Why Australia?

Tech Nation is supporting UK companies with their growth into the Australian Market.

Australia is a sophisticated market with opportunities across multiple tech sectors. Offering access to a stable business environment, Australia is open to investment and continues to be a preferred destination for first time international expansion due to ease of language and doing business. Many tech businesses also benefit from utilising Australia as a test bed for new products and services.

Whilst Sydney and Melbourne remain at the top of destinations companies consider when expanding to Australia, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth can also offer niche opportunities.

The majority of corporate headquarters are located in Melbourne and Sydney. International investors such as Slack, Square, Google, Facebook and Zendesk also have significant offices in the region. Australian unicorns include Canva, CultureAmp, Atlassian and AirWallex.
