Today on StartupSmart, we identify 10 Australian start-ups leading the charge to fame and fortune in Silicon Valley.


It’s never been easier to start-up on a shoestring and pitch your business to a US investor, leading to a growing number of Aussie tech ventures traversing the Pacific in order to try their luck.

There’s an ongoing debate as to whether these relocations are an indictment of Australia’s venture capital community, or whether they are a misguided grab for cash that isn’t necessarily there.

Either way, today’s top 10 are worth keeping an eye on as they strive to become Australia’s business powerhouses of the future.

Elsewhere, lawyer James Omond has some useful advice on trademark breaches and we have the tale of two young Sydney entrepreneurs looking to bounce back after losing two co-founders due to the headhunting efforts of Google, Apple and Facebook.

Finally, are you looking at kicking off some marketing activity but don't have a huge budget? If so, you should check out our FREE webinar on Wednesday, June 6 for some top tips on how to market your business on a shoestring.
