Annie Slattery, an Irish entrepreneur, has received the top award in Australia for women in tech start-ups. Slattery was presented with the award at Hopper Down Under, an event that is part of the Grace Hopper Celebration, one of the world's largest gatherings of women in computing and technology. Slattery received the award for her start-up ConX, which connects contractors in the construction industry online, with the goal of changing how construction contractors can find and win jobs.
The award was part of a pitch competition that included more than 100 women proposing ideas for a share of more than $100,000 in business support services. The final event was hosted by Austrade, the Australian Government's lead agency for international trade promotion and investment attraction.
"Elevating women entrepreneurs and innovators is critical to Australia's ability to compete in international markets, creating new opportunities for industries and supporting high standards of living," said Austrade CEO Stephanie Fahey.
