Our principals and wider network have had a formative role in the establishment of the tech startup ecosystem in Australia and links to SE Asia.
Most of this work is entirely volunteer. Examples include –
- Founding SydStart the largest tech startup conference (now called StartCon)
- Being founding sponsor of The Start Society (StartSoc) the only national grassroots independent membership based industry body for tech startups
- Uniquely shaping or assisting seed or assisting to establish a range of other accelerators, incubators, co-working spaces, hackathons, meet ups, specialist groups, educational initiatives and policy shaping. Many of these are the first of their kind and/or the largest.
- Lobbying and activism for improved Government focus and support
We are deeply proud of our formational contribution to the tech startup ecosystem in Australia and regionally. It is not an obligation or a task, it is simply who we are and what we do.
We have made a real difference in less than a decade and we are just getting started!
