Hello all, Justin Flynn here doing my first StartupDigest Sydney edition. For those of you who don’t know me, I am the founder of StartCast
, and while Marko Vasiljevic
(Co-founder of Play Entourage
) is busy with his own startup, I will be stepping in to help out the cause.
These last two weeks of July have been quite exciting. Last Saturday I attended the Sydney Startup Weekend
at Technology Park in Redfern; it was fantastic and so great to see so many people involved in creating new business!
The next couple of weeks are set to be just as exciting; the Food, Wine and Social Media being held at Tone Bar looks very interesting, so be sure to pick up some tickets
