Oliver MilmanToday on StartupSmart, we examine how start-up mentoring in Australia is changing from a long courtship to a quick-fire relationship.

Mentor network PushStart has introduced Aussie start-ups to the concept of mentor “speed dating”, where budding entrepreneurs get just 15 minutes to discuss their ideas with industry heavyweights.

But is this development helpful for start-ups keen to get their ideas off the ground? We speak to those that have taken part to find out.

Elsewhere, we profile Tapit, a new business that’s looking to cash in on the latest in mobile technology, reveal which Startup Weekend team is off to a Singapore incubator and provide some tips, via mentor William Willems, on how to cut your operational costs.
