Hello and welcome to Startup News, the Perth/WA Startup News site that has all the latest news on local events and startups.
Since 2013, Startup News has become the go to place for everything innovation and startup in Western Australia. We do this through the work of a bunch of great volunteers, and we rely on Sponsorship to keep the doors open (virtual doors that is; we’re a distributed team).
We enjoy having a cohort of great contributors, and the core team. Between us, we publish daily, with over 650 articles in our archives.
Marcus Holmes, Co-founder and Managing Editor
Marcus has been in the Perth startup scene since 2011, and has been a passionate enthusiast for the community ever since. Involved in startups since about 1995, (but we didn’t call them startups back then), they were small businesses for a while, then SME’s. Marcus is a code monkey by trade and inclination, and have been writing software products for over 20 years. He wouldn’t claim to be any good at it, but knows what being bad at it looks like. His day job is as CEO of the Phnom Penh Post in Cambodia.
Miles Burke, Producer
Miles has been involved in online business since 1995, and is founder and MD of local digital marketing company, Bam Creative, and founder & MD of tech startup, 6Q. In his spare time, between mentoring, running two businesses and producing //SN, you can find him asleep or eating.
Patrick Green, Co-founder
Patrick has been a keen observer and participant in the local Perth Startup scene for a number of years. He has a wonderful family, some chickens, play bass in a band for a hobby and lives in the Perth hills. Software consulting is his profession, and has been starting up new ideas for many years.
Charlie Gunningham, Contributor / Business
Graduating from UWA with an MBA, Charlie cofounded aussiehome.com in 1999, which he ran before selling to REIWA in 2010, becoming EGM of reiwa.com then CEO of Business News. He now works for Accelerating Commercialisation, a federal government programme assisting innovative companies commercialise their IP with matching grants of up to $1M. He is a keen supporter of the local startup tech scene, and occasionally rants about English cricket.
We have a great collection of passionate writers who contribute to us, when they can. We love them, they provide us great content, and do their best to have real lives at the same time.
You can see their names under the article headlines. Make sure you support them by saying hello on social media, or buying them a drink at the next event.
