Atlassian get top G'day gong

Praised for 10 years of uber innovation

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Australian softwar darlings Atlassian has been recognised by the Australian government for its achievements, securing a G’Day USA Excellence in Innovation Award.

G’Day USA is an annual program designed to showcase Australian business capabilities in the United States.

In 10 years, Atlassian has amassed more than 17,000 customers and 440 employees worldwide with offices in Sydney, San Francisco, and Amsterdam.

“Atlassian is truly unique. There are very, very few companies that can start with a $AU10,000 credit card, grow, remain profitable over the next ten years, and become a global enterprise,” said Rich Wong, partner with venture capital firm Accel Partners that invested $US60 million USD in Atlassian in 2010. Atlassian received the premier Innovation award from the Honorable Kim Beazley, AC, Australian Ambassador to the US, this week at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.

Around 250 guests from Fortune 500 companies, investment firms, government agencies, world-renowned universities, and relevant industry associations all attended the ceremony.

“At Atlassian, we want to help others make better software themselves. We want to help software teams collaborate better. Ultimately, we want to help companies innovate more quickly, more easily. Software is becoming increasingly more strategic to businesses around the world and our goal is to help them become more innovative in how they build it, manage it, and use it,” Atlassian co-founder Scott Farquhar said. ®
