Today on StartupSmart, we look at whether the widespread entrepreneurial dream of decamping to the US to find fame and fortune is all that it’s cracked up to be.
While there appears to be a huge amount of money flowing from US investors at the moment – some of it finding its way to Aussie start-ups – the very real danger of relocating and then not raising funding is sometimes overlooked.
Today, we speak to local investors and those who have raised money in the US to identify at what point Australian ventures need to look overseas, if at all.
Elsewhere, lawyer Craig Yeung explains what to do if a business partner backs out and breaks their memorandum of understanding and we speak to StartupSmart mentor and tech entrepreneur Fred Schebesta about his financial product start-up Finder.com.au.
