Message from the Editor in Chief
Thank you for visiting the StartUp Guide AU website!
Australia has always been a lucky country. We have stable government, good infrastructure, a generous social welfare safety net and a resilient economy that has successfully weathered many storms.
Our economy is now transitioning away from the mining boom. The question now begs: where will we look to? The answer lies in innovative businesses.
Our world is rapidly changing as new technology hits the streets, causing a wave of disruption to established business models. There is no forecast that this wave is about to ebb away anytime soon. As startups bloom across the country, Federal and State governments are trying to encourage owner-founders to grow their startup domestically by providing a wide range of incentives such as tax cuts and reforms.
In the next few years, we are going to see capital raising change with the likely introduction of equity crowdfunding.
With entrepreneurs now getting the support they need, there is a push for young people to monetise their ideas. That is why I have built this website; as a way to continue helping people grow influential businesses.
We provide you with step-by-step guides and word-for-word scripts to close deals, get attention, break down barriers and foolproof ideas. Few are sorry to have taken the leap into being an entrepreneur. It is rewarding even in the face of failure.
I want to thank the contributors of the StartUp Guide as well as my mentors who have guided me all these years.
I wish you the very best in your undertakings and I hope the resources on this website have been useful.
There has never been a more exciting time to grow a business in Australia.
