It’s been another big year for the Australian startup community, and for Startup Daily.
While there is significant uncertainty around issues including the R&D Tax Incentive and the AA Bill and its effect on local tech companies, the startup ecosystem has gone from strength to strength in 2018. From new startup launches to key personnel appointments and funding announcements, there have been countless stories to tell each day and we’ve loved every minute.
As my fourth year at Startup Daily comes to a close, I’ve particularly enjoyed seeing the success of companies I first wrote about in my early days in 2015 as little fledgling things with lofty goals, the personal growth and courage of entrepreneurs and figures who have become strong advocates for the industry, and the conversation about startups develop in the mainstream (some of my friends actually know what a startup is now and not just because they heard it from me!).
On a personal note, I was thrilled to be given the Startup Journalist of the Year award at StartCon earlier this year – thank you to those who voted! More importantly, thank you to each and every one of you who keep coming back to read Startup Daily, and above all, thank you to those of you who have allowed Startup Daily to tell your story. Our team is inspired every day by the work you do and the companies you’re building.
We’ll be back better than ever in 2019.
