Today on StartupSmart, we look at whether Australias big businesses are finally coming to the party when it comes to start-up investment.While the likes of Facebook, Google and even American Express have been pouring cash into start-ups in the US, Australia’s major corporate players have been noticeably reticent to back local innovation.
But Telstra’s recent establishment of a $40 million fund to commercialise new ideas suggests that attitudes could be shifting.
Today, we identify the other large companies willing to back start-ups, as well as provide five essential tips on how to get on the radar of a major industry player.
Elsewhere, we profile up-and-coming business PaperAct and mentor Gillian Franklin has some advice on how to handle your wholesale client base.
