Some great news for aspiring tech entrepreneurs in Australia. A Y Combinator/Techstars mentorship and seed funding group has launched in Sydney - Startmate.

I think this is fantastic for the Sydney startup scene, and they have some very experienced Australian tech entrepreneurs involved so I invited Niki Scevak along to the Shoes of Prey office to tell us more about it.

Hats off to the Startmate team for getting this off the ground. A lot of people in Australia talk about the need for more entrepreneur support programs and seed financing in Australia, congratulations to Startmate for being the first to do it.

  1. Very cool - I like the idea and hope more follow. I wonder how many ideas do not get off the ground simply because people lack this helping hand. It will be interesting to see how successful these first 5 chosen become.
