MicroEnergyLabs selected to present at Tech23


Technology showcase Tech23 has announced the 23 start-ups that will take part in this year’s event, including Ignition Labs accelerator company, MicroEnergyLabs, with $100,000 in cash prizes up for grabs.


MicroEnergyLabs provides instant information about electricity usage to reduce costs and uncertainty. The technology gathers and delivers consumption information from the meter to the user in near real time. This offers householders affordable insight into their usage patterns, cost control and the opportunity to directly monitor the outcomes of any energy saving activities.


Tech23 2012, to be held in Sydney on Tuesday, October 23, is sponsored by NSW Trade & Investment, Commercialisation Australia, the CSIRO and a handful of other organisations.


A total of 23 tech start-ups will vie for $100,000 in cash prizes, in addition to the ATP Innovations Explorer Award, which includes return flights to Silicon Valley, five nights’ accommodation, and a week of meetings with investors, potential customers and serial entrepreneurs.


Another major draw card of the event is the impressive line-up of ICT industry experts who will be there to lend them a hand. This year’s list of industry experts includes serial entrepreneur Bill Bartee, SEEK co-founder Paul Bassat, and Yuuwa Capital co-founder Matthew Macfarlane.
