"Cool Companies manage to stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are organisations that aspire to be admired. They are trend-setters in attitude and action. Quite simply, they are… cool!"

James Tuckerman - Founder, Anthill Magazine

Impress  stakeholders and win the attention of prospective investors. Get positive exposure, fame and good vibes!

  • The Australian Anthill Cool Company Awards are extremely egalitarian. Previous winners have included two-person start-ups, not-for-profit social enterprises, large private companies and publicly-listed corporations. Coolness is not about size.

  • Aside from the great publicity and accolades, many past applicants have relayed back to us that the award process itself provides an excellent opportunity for entrants to self-reflect and identify their strengths and cultural attributes. What makes you different?

  • Winners, Finalists, Honourable Mentions and Top 50 participants will be presented with an official Cool Company Award logo for placement on corporate materials. Finalists and winners will also be presented with an award plaque and/or trophy.
  • Anthill uses the award process to uncover and identify inspiring stories and unconventional opinions, from within and beyond the winners circle. We rely on your applications to feed editorial content and identify Australia’s most exciting innovations and companies.
