The Australian Startup Series Podcast

PODCAST ARTWORK_Australian Startup Series_01

What will the new economy look like? As startups become the new way of life, Australia must become more open and less restrictive to encourage innovation. Hear entrepreneurs’ firsthand accounts of their journey and learn what that has meant to the startup world.

This podcast will give you a great insight into Australia’s innovation ecosystem by tracing its history and future. If you’re curious as to how it all started, who were the innovators that helped transform it, and how this ecosystem interacts with others both domestically and around the world- this is a must-listen!

Welcome to Day One Across Socials


I’ve never seen someone pull together audio clips with this level of clarity and logic, it really is top-notch work.

Bless you for the work you’re doing Adam! Australia needs exactly what you’re doing, and I’d be honoured to contribute in any way I can.

Director of Entrepreneurship,

The interviews undertaken and proposed by Adam Spencer at W2D1 serve as a rich documentation of that evolution and significant milestones within that, with many insights and lessons for all stakeholders in the ecosystem to benefit from.

Head of Startup Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services


Adam’s work in capturing and documenting those stories is incredibly important – both for current ecosystem members and the many, many that will hopefully follow.
