42 cool Australian internet startups (…and counting)


Richard MacManus’ Read/WriteWeb ran a blog post by Vishal Sharma in Oct06 showcasing the Top web apps in Australia. Placed in a situation where he was always going to be pushing the proverbial up the hill with a Fisher-Price Funtastic shovel, Vishal did a great job. Of most interest to me, however, were the comments on the blog post. Some great startups that were still under the radar.

To indulge my interest in this area (and also to continue on from RWW’s landmark blog post), I have created a wiki and a wiki page. Please feel free to add/delete/amend as you see fit.

    Thanks for your comments guys but really the hard work was done by Vishal and Richard. I was just keen to continue the thread by providing a wiki to act as a ‘rolling’ register of local web startups. Your stories provide inspiration and help dull the pain of the work week 🙂

    Marty, what I had in mind was that by creating this wiki page eventually some journo would stumble onto it and pick up the scent. So perhaps an overview of the offering, some history and then bios of the founders (for starters).

    Nice list, and a great idea to push startup exposure, but how does get onto the list? is a CNET product in support of it’s print title, and is part of the global CNET Builder network. Hardly a startup, certainly not a web app.

    Great post, Jon.

    More than ever before, web startups need the oxygen of exposure to survive and thrive. You and Vishal are certainly doing your bit to help the local talent.
