Top 10 articles for September quarter, and other news…

Startup News Top 10
The top 10 stories were about the usual stuff - successes, fund raising, grants and advice.

// What were the most read stories on Startup News over the September quarter? The results are in …

The last three months saw Startup News grow to 34 contributors overall, and pump out 64 articles, 6 podcasts, but probably most important of all – we launched the HUBS database, which details 130 places, programs, investor groups, events and incubators of all kinds here in WA.

If you’ve not discovered this Hubs database yet, click on the HUBS tab up top, and navigate to the list; there’s also a separate co-working list which shows 55 such spaces.

The new HUBS database is now hosted on Startup News

Thanks go to Andrew Outhwaite of We Are Arising for this work, and Startup WA for their support in putting this together.

Startup News is incredibly proud to be involved, and be chosen to host this resource.

Traffic to the site has tripled over the past few years, and subscribers to Startup News’ Friday 3pm email has grown from 900 or so a year ago, to just under 2,000 today. Thanks for your support!

We exist to promote and share the goings on of WA’s exciting startup community. It needs and deserves to be publicised, and we should never shy away from our own success stories. With more success will come more investment, and yet more success. The ecosystem always comes first (we now even have a place to showcase it), we need more successes, and the investors and backers will then accelerate. Amen.
