Tech23, a six-year-old Sydney-based technology event known for recognising some of Australia’s most innovative startups, has just announced the top 23 companies that will be presenting at the event in October.
A global competition called Pitch will bring together major founders like Jack Dorsey (Twitter), Reed Hastings (Netflix), Elon Musk (PayPal, Tesla, Space X), Arianna Huffington (Huffington Post) and Niklas Zennström (Skype) to judge 200 of the world’s best startups.
As part of Startup Spring, Startup Daily decided to run a webcast event all around building a strong ecommerce business. This space has the potential to be a huge growth area for Australia and there certainly are many attempting to have a crack at building a business that makes its money online – however many fail, and do so quickly.
Startup Daily is fortunate to have a stellar line up of entrepreneurs who will partake in a one-hour educational panel chat, next Wednesday, September 10th.
Silicon Valley-based tech companies Prezi and Tilt have teamed up to offer two university students the chance to hang out with tech luminaries in San Francisco next year, with all flight and accommodation costs paid for.
This year, over 220 people expressed interest in pitching at SydStart 2014. Eighty semi-finalists were chosen from that pool – each of whom have ventures focusing on scalable, productised web and mobile technology, as well as tech startups that are in big markets. The finalists took part in four rounds of screening at the ASX, and each semi-finalist was scored by multiple judges according to five judging criteria. The top 10 were chosen to pitch on the main stage.
Matt Jones decided to launch what he hopes will become a national event – and perhaps even a movement. The Modern Tradie Workshop will kick off on the 5th of September in Sydney, and is aimed at empowering tradies so that they can experience the full benefits of technology.
