Talk Of The Town: Friday 8th August 2014


Talk of the town is our weekly post of links and tidbits that we hear about, but didn’t get time to write about. 


  • Joondalups Enterprise Week launched on Monday in the new Sixty27 co-working space. Tonight they are having a Startup Party to wind-up instead of the originally planned Startup Weekend. The Startup News team are heading up there tonight, so get on  a train and join us.
  • RAC and Spacecubed made big news by announcing WA’s First Startup Accelerator – called SeedSpark. The ‘First’ title is debatable, but the concept is awesome, and will really pave the way for more of these Corporate Sponsored accelerator programs.
  • Whipper Snapper Distillery opened their doors this week with a cafe and tasting shop front.  A lot of excited and tipsy people around East Perth now.
  • NifNex today organised a Guinness Book Of Records attempt for Speed Networking.  Lets hope that goes well.
  • Atomic Sky Special offer: Become a Community Member at The Tech Hub before the end of the month and you’ll receive a free photo shoot at our video studio Video Cha Cha. The photo shoot includes three corporate photo’s to use for LinkedIn or any other online media.
  • Theres a rumour Flat Attack is planning a crowd funding campaign and has enlisted some big guns.  Stay tuned.
  • Greame Speak from GoPC is off to pitch at SydStart.  Good luck!
