Silicon Beach Brisbane & Gold Coast have been running for around 18 months and we have seen huge growth in the membership numbers. We would like your feedback on how would can continue to grow the Startup Eco System in Queensland. One of the suggestions is to create a formal organisation with a basic membership fee. This would allow a formal process for managing sponsors, events and activities. There maybe also an interest in what startups with have in the group and what they are doing, this could be promoted via a newsletter. We look forward to your feedback.

SwipeAds is an advertising platform that gives website owners a more secure way of protecting their websites from spammers, and ensures that people are engaging with advertiser's brands through branded game CAPTCHAs. Since launching their site (www.swipeads.co) 5 weeks ago, SwipeAds already has over 500 websites across 35 countries using their FunCaptcha's – and that number is growing by about 150 sites per week. SwipeAds was formed after co-founders Chris Macaulay, Kevin Gosschalk, and Matthew Ford won Startup Weekend Brisbane in November 2012. This startup already has it's eyes on the US and Asian markets, and is definitely one to watch!
