Shark Mitigation Systems is this fortnight’s highest trending startup, having spent the previous three fortnights at number two on Techboard’s ranking. The recently listed company secured a contract with the World Surf League, which will see its Clever Buoy technology deployed at the J-Bay Open world surfing event, and attracted significant press coverage as a result.
Cleantech Energy Made Clean is Techboard’s highest trending unlisted company (and fourth in the overall ranking). It announced delivery of New Zealand’s first grid-connected commercial BESS to energy company Alpine Energy. In addition, the company’s Belmont headquarters played host to Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, who was in town to launch a $62 million apprenticeship plan. The cleantech is our highest ranking ‘unlisted’ company.

Curtin University spinout ePat is the second highest trending unlisted company. The healthtech announced a memorandum of understanding had been signed with UK insurance counter-fraud group Strenuus Ltd. This is an exciting development for the facial recognition technology which until now had been focussed on assessing pain in non-communicative patients. The news resulted in a price surge of shares in MinQuest, who is in the process of a RTO with ePat.
Democracy technology startup veri.vote is the third highest trending unlisted company, and remains in our top ten overall. It picked up three nominations from our Panel of Experts and featured widely in local press.
In the overall ranking ResApp Health is our second highest trending company, after an eventful fortnight in which it was shortlisted for Best Tech IPO/ Venture Capital Raising in the Talent Unleashed Awards, and released new data which showed its diagnostic app works on adults as well as children. The healthtech’s website also showed significant improvements in rank, daily time on site and page view metrics.
