We’ve just seen a big-spending Federal budget. What do Jelix VC CEO Andrea Gardiner and Carthona Capital partner Dean Dorrell reckon it all means for startups? Do we need a ‘patent box’ for deep tech? And what have both learned about why a startup succeeds?
TWISTA welcomes back SheEO Country Lead Julie Trell and Main Sequence GP Mike Nicholls to explore the post-pandemic landscape for startups, emerging funding models – and what their experience has taught them are the key elements for a successful startup.
We’re joined by Carthona Capital’s Dean Dorrell and Unboxxed’s Anne-Marie Elias, discussing the big stories for startups: the Federal Election, the rise & hack of Canva, and Atlassian’s open-source term sheet – plus much more!
We’re joined by ‘Rescue Mike’ Nicholls and Anne-Marie Elias, discussing the big stories for startups: the Access Act, Startup Muster funding, Shoes of Prey collapsing – and paying yourself enough as a founder!
Big thanks to TWISTA sponsors Pitney Bowes and Mobile Experience — their support makes our podcast possible!

TWISTA sits down with Main Sequence GP Mike Nicholls and Spark Festival Director Maxine Sherrin to discuss the profusion of hubs and funds; Canva, Australia’s latest unicorn startup; and the crash and burn of Zoox’ CEO.
