Episode S06E03 – Creative Tech Special

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.   

A bit extra for our web visitors — here is Chantal Abouchar’s AFTRS masters thesis that led to the formation of The Studio:  Inventing the Future. Chantal Abouchar MSAB thesis. ver Feb 2015
