We’re back for Series 7 of This Week in Startups Australia! For this series our theme is all about scale – the hardest job for any entrepreneur.
Jason’s back — and he’s been to Australia. What did Jason learn about Australia’s startup ecosystem at LAUNCH Sydney? He spills the beans, and shares his hopes for a thriving angel ecosystem – and how to make that happen.
The fifth annual Startup Muster survey of the Australian startup ecosystem contains a wealth of sobering statistics about where we’re going backward. Monica Wulff and Murray Hurps go through the good, the bad, and the data.
Alan Jones has a growing reputation as THE MENTOR for Australian startups. TWISTA finds out what makes a great mentor tick. Then TWISTA catches up with GoFar – who have gone far since they first appeared on the show back in 2014.
Asking for investment is never easy – but it’s surprisingly easy to get wrong. We’ll look at what investors really want to see, then we’ll dive into the TWISTA archives to hear from Switch Automation CEO Deb Noller about her own fundraising process – some of the best advice given to listeners of this show!
