As part of the Sunrise conference this year I had the chance to interview the amazing Jost Stollmann from Tyro. Thanks to Niki and the guys from Blackbird for pulling the conference together. Really valuable for the whole sector and great fun too.
Tony Surtees is one of the best known players in the Australian start-up scene. He’s done everything, including a corporate life with Yahoo! to being an entrepreneur, investor, advisor, mentor and many more things. His latest venture is Zeetings.com. I sat down and talked to him about Zeetings and Tony’s thoughts on the startup scene.
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.
