The Western Australian government is committed to raising the profile of innovation in Western Australia and supporting the delivery of government initiatives to advance the growth of the State’s innovation based industries.

The WA Innovator of the Year (IOTY) program has showcased innovative and entrepreneurial individuals, businesses and creative minds since 2006. The program has benefited many of those who have participated as well as the broader community of Western Australia.

The WA Innovator of the Year program, is a valuable initiative which provides support to innovators and entrepreneurs across our State.

2020 WA Innovator of the Year 

Regrettably due to COVID-19, the Innovator of the Year Program has been postponed to 2021.

Postponement of the program was required due to uncertainty about the length and extent of the impacts of the virus, and the high level of person to person interaction in the program through its networking functions and commercialisation training.

The program will resume in 2021, when we look forward to engaging with the IOTY community once again to further this important work.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank the many generous IOTY sponsors and other valuable IOTY community members for their understanding about this action, and for their vital and continued support.
