On September 14, the Western Australian Government launched Dealroom WA, a new data-driven public dashboard to develop the State’s early-stage innovation ecosystem.
Dealroom WA displays the latest information on start-ups, innovators, high-growth companies, scale-ups, corporates, funding rounds, and investments from across Western Australia. The platform provides real-time and historic information on the size and activity within WA’s early-stage innovation ecosystem, including support systems such as accelerator programs, co-working spaces, universities, grants, and assistance.
The platform tracks information from more than 500,000 start-ups globally, and last year collected data on US$700 billion worth of funding deals. The Innovation and ICT Minister stated that the government is committed to supporting local start-ups and innovators, and the launch of Dealroom WA provides the sector with an insightful tool for making better-informed decisions. The innovative, data-driven platform will be the first time the entire innovation ecosystem has been mapped for public view in Western Australia.
