LMBA-receiving HSBC International Businesses AwardAustralian technology developer Emesent was recently awarded the HSBC Award for Excellence in International Business at the Brisbane Lord Mayor Business Awards for 2021. The company reported it was also privileged to receive a special mention for the ANZ Award for High-Growth Business.

“We’re so proud to be recognized as one of the most innovative businesses in Brisbane against such robust competition,” CEO and Co-founder Dr. Stefan Hrabar said.

The Lord Mayor’s Business Awards are run annually to acknowledge the contributions of businesses and individuals in making Brisbane a vibrant center of innovation and enterprise. Operating in Brisbane brings Emesent advantages, Hrabar said.

“Brisbane has a great Technology Ecosystem, especially in the area of robotics,” Hrabar said. “Co-founder Dr. Farid Kendoul and I spent over a decade at the CSIRO Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group in Brisbane, researching what would become our flagship product, Hovermap.

“There is also the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision and the Queensland AI Hub, which we’ve had the pleasure of partnering with.”
