The Australian Startup Series Podcast
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!

When I first joined the periphery of the Aus startup ecosystem in 2010, I thought I was late and saw myself as an outsider. It is so humbling to see what this community and industry has become over the last decade+. The oral history being captured by @WelcometoDayOne is 🤯💜 https://t.co/8FB0gFQCZQ— LCap⚡️ (@laurenjcapelin) February 1, 2022
