I visited the hotbed of Canberra startup innovation, the CBR Innovation Network. One of their hottest startups is Instaclustr, which offers cloud access to the remarkable Apache Cassandra database. Only about a year old this startup has delivered an amazing product, expanded overseas and raised over $2m in funding. I sat down and chatted to Doug Stuart, their CEO.
I moderated a panel on “Alternative Finance” at the ASX. Organised by Chris and Jonny from Equitise, the panel had:
– Ben Heap, Chairman of H2 Ventures
– Daniel Foggo, CEO of RateSetter Australia
– Paul Fletcher, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Communications
– Markus Kahlbetzer, BridgeLane Group
