Winners revealed for the 2023 Finder Innovation Awards

The Aussie businesses championing innovation have been revealed in the 2023 Finder Innovation Awards.

Now in its eighth year, the Finder Innovation Awards are designed to celebrate Australian businesses and people that are changing the game across a number of industries including banking, customer service, insurance and retail.

With 15 categories covered in 2023, these are the most forward-thinking products, services and people in Australia.

Amber’s Dr Aleksis Xenophon was named Innovation Champion for their work on the SmartShift™ algorithm, which underpins the Amber for Batteries automation product.

Flip Insurance won the award for Best Insurance Innovation with its groundbreaking on-demand insurance cover for sports injuries, while Airgarden won the award for Best Retail Product Innovation.

Other recognised brands include Updoc, Hnry and ahm.

Chris Ellis, Finder Australia’s CEO, said the Awards celebrate the country’s most forward-thinking people and businesses.

“Several reports have shown that Australia ranks low in terms of innovation, productivity and entrepreneurship on the global stage. We have a real opportunity to change this.

“The Finder Innovation Awards set the benchmark for excellence and creativity in Australia by celebrating businesses that are constantly evolving their products and services.

“This year’s entries brought forth some incredibly impressive ideas and approaches that have raised the standard for Australian businesses.

“We like to recognise those that challenge the status quo in order to improve the quality of products and services on offer in Australia.”
