StartupAUS welcomes Minister Sinodinos to the innovation portfolio

18 January, 2017

CEO and Executive Director of StartupAUS, Alex McCauley:

“Following Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s announced new changes to his ministry, StartupAUS would like to congratulate the former Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science Greg Hunt and wish him well in his role as the Minister for Health.

“StartupAUS warmly welcomes Arthur Sinodinos to the innovation portfolio. This is a critical time for innovation and startups, and we need to make sure we don’t lose momentum as a result of political change. We expect the government to keep moving swiftly towards delivering the second wave of the National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA) and we look forward to working with Minister Sinodinos to drive new sources of economic growth and ensure that its policies deliver the innovation, the investment, and the technology that will secure Australia’s future,” said Mr McCauley.
