There’s a great deal of talk and angst about the nature of the Australian start-up ecosystem – mostly revolving around the lack of support and the idea that the needed money is only available in the USA. So having some facts has got to be a good thing: That’s where Startup Muster comes into play.
Startup Muster “measures and publishes the progress, challenges and opportunities in the Australian startup ecosystem, in order to demonstrate and accelerate impact”.
Startup Muster was founded in 2013 by Murray Hurps and Monica Wulff as a volunteer effort for the first two years, and now with support from the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, Google and UTS.
Submissions for the 2016 survey close in 8 days. So if you’re running a startup, considering running a startup, or just helping startups, or thinking of helping – face it if you’re involved in any way – head on over to www.startupmuster.com and participate in the survey.
If you’re not doing any of those things, it’s worth heading on over there anyway and reading the 2015 report. Facts are good.
