Canva co-founder and Chief Product Officer Cameron Adams visited TWISTA all the way back in series 2. Seven years later, Canva is bigger – and better. How did that happen? What has Cam learned about growing well and building a culture that attracts talent? Cam shares Canva’s story on this episode of TWISTA.
How are startups adapting to the in-and-out-and-in-again of pandemic lockdowns? Is Go1, Australia’s newest unicorn, on a growth path to be the next Canva? Microsoft for Startups’ Annie Parker and Main Sequence Ventures’ Phil Morle offer their insights – and their secrets for startup success.
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!
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.
Creative tech has produced some of Australia’s most successful startups – businesses like Canva and Envato (both interviewed here on TWISTA). And now there’s a place for creative tech startups to be born, grow, and thrive – The Studio at Sydney’s Startup Hub. TWISTA talks to the doyenne of Australia’s creative tech scene, Chantal Abouchar, about the half-decade journey that brought The Studio into being – and what’s next for Australia’s creative tech community.
We follow that up with a mind-blowing interview with Oovvuu co-founders Ricky Sutton and Greg Moore. Their mission to ‘repatriate’ the $20 billion taken away from media organisations by Google and Facebook is both audacious and has been very well executed. In five years of talking to Australian startups, Oovvuu may be my favourite.
Creative tech is going big, on this episode of TWISTA.
