2015 BRW Most Innovative Companies list

Tuesday, 3 March 2015

Entries are now open for the 2015 BRW Most Innovative Companies list. If you would classify your company as being in any way innovative, you should definitely enter. And even if you think you should be more innovative than you are, you should still enter because the entry process includes an Innovation Survey Report that will be extraordinarily beneficial for your organisation.

The 50 most innovative companies will be published in both the Australian Financial Review and BRW in August, providing a fabulous opportunity for your company to gain national  recognition.

For the companies that made last year’s list, the now iconic BRW Most Innovative Companies List, has had an enormous effect on attracting top talent, attracting new clients, improving morale and productivity, and strengthening relationships with current clients.

Last year’s list included companies like Commonwealth Bank, Deloitte, Westpac and Xero and a host of other big and small organisations from all over Australia.

Registration is super simple. Just complete the quick registration form on our website www.inventium.com.au/mic/.
