    Welcome The Cleantech Open Competition is a hunt for the most promising clean technology innovation anywhere in the world. One national winner from each country will then compete, in November each year, against the winners from other countries at the global finals in California.

    As a key initiative of the Clean Technologies Supplier Advocate industry development strategy, the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE) is funding the Australian competition, as part of this global event. DIISRTE has commissioned Australian CleanTech to manage the competition and has worked closely with the Competition Partners to deliver the greatest value for the Australian cleantech sector.

    The Competition was launched by the Hon Mark Dreyfus QC MP, Parliamentary Secretary for Industry and Innovation, in May 2012. In July, we announced the 30 Semi Finalists that had qualified for the two months of intensive business mentoring to develop their business plans and growth strategies. Our aim was to help as many as possible of these companies to succeed and grow into global leaders in their field of clean technology.

    In September, we announced the seven Finalists for the Australian competition. The Australian Winner will be announced at the Awards dinner at the Melbourne Aquarium on 4th October by the Parliamentary Secretary. The Winner will compete in the global Cleantech Open finals in November in California.

    Many of these outstanding companies are presenting and exhibiting at this FutureBuild conference. The seminar also features leading cleantech venture capital investors from China, Korea and Australia, all looking for the best technologies that they can back and take to the world. The Finalists will be travelling to California in November to further grow their businesses.

    I would like to thank the Competition Partners, Mentors and Judges for their generous donation of time, skill and effort - your input has helped many of the companies make significant progress. I also thank you for your time in visiting the exhibition, listening to the seminar or coming along to the dinner. The ultimate success of cleantech companies will only occur with engagement across the wider community and we ask that you act as ambassadors for the industry and tell people of the great companies that you have seen today.
