A List of Australian Startups That You Should Know About (Part 8): 176–200
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull with his cute tiger paws.
This is an on-going list that I’m writing to help promote #startupaus. I hope you have enjoyed list one, two, three, four, five and six. I can’t believe that I have written about 200 startups in the last 8 weeks.
If you’re an Aussie start, get off your butt and support what’s going on here. And, please …. stop whining about TechSydney on the Facebook Group Sydney Startups. Instead of complaining, offer to help them instead. Become involved.
- SydStart: Australia’s largest tech conference. Get your tickets here.
- SouthStart: A little sparrow told me (not from Game of Thrones) that Robert Scoble is attending. All happening, June 8–9.
It is important to mention that there is no ranking system associated with any of these lists. Sometimes people might email me or I may discover these startups by chance. Whichever way — it has been compiled on the go.
For all of those that are in the Australian startup community, check out Paul Tower’s StartupSoda (Mattermark Daily for Australian tech news). It shows a quick daily snapshot of what’s going on here in Australian tech. Pretty cool!
It would mean the world to me if you could sign up to my weekly startup essays on ghacklabs. I am writing about some new theories that I have on startups — no spam, just great content once a week.
Oh, and if you’re an IT professional looking for contract work — the boys at Upspot.io will sort you out. I have never seen a website load as fast as theirs … some special monkey code magic going on here.
