TWISTA explores the potential of Australia’s new government with VCs Anne-Marie Elias (CEO, Beckon Capital) and Phil Morle (Partner, Main Sequence Ventures) – and the policy needs of a nation that requires an innovation mindset at every level. Plus: Inflationary pressures and two more WORLDCHANGING startups – SLURRYTUB and Samsara Eco!
A pandemic-driven transition to telehealth meant Silvia Pfeiffer‘s Coviu grew massively over the last year. How does she balance growth against the ever-changing rules of Australia’s Medicare system? And what has Silvia learned about building a successful startup?
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!

TWISTA co-host Claire Connelly in conversation with Paul Shetler, the former chief of the Digital Transformation Office (now the Digital Transformation Agency).
With more than 20 years experience, Shetler has worked in digital transformation for both the UK government’s Cabinet Office and the UK’s Ministry of Justice, as well as in the US private sector for companies including Oracle and Microsoft.
Shetler recently had some frank words for Turnbull administration – and the public service more broadly – and its role in the quote ‘predictable’ raft of recent IT failures across the ATO, ABS and Centrelink, to name a few.
