The implementation of the carbon tax last month, along with the $200 million Renewable Energy Venture Capital Fund which will back green innovation, has raised hopes of a clean tech boom among Australian start-ups.


But there are other, arguably bigger, factors at play. The falling cost of technology and growing overseas market opportunities are giving what will hopefully be a long-term spur to a new generation of sustainable start-ups.

The recent launch of Australia’s first clean tech start-up accelerator highlights this potential. Over the next two days, we’ll bring you the secrets of each of the participants’ success thus far.

Elsewhere, business advisor Paul Clements explains how to best deal with the banks and we have a new eBook aimed squarely at the soloists among you – 20 top tips for maintaining a healthy work/life balance. You can download it here.
