    What we're about

    Startup Melbourne is based on the idea that we all must continue to learn, to share, and collaborate in order to promote Australia's innovative digital solutions to the world.

    It aims to document my personal journey through the startup world. To be filled with my personal learnings, both successes and failures, and share stories from startup veterans - all with the intention of making your journey to the top that little bit easier.

    “Our future prosperity depends on the quality of our collective imaginations.”
    — The Lean Startup
