For the final episode of the 3rd season of Startup West and 2021, we have a founders’ panel recorded in front of a live audience at Little Creatures in Fremantle as part of the recent Freo Startup Fest.

Charlie Gunningham (Startup News) chats with Julian Ilich (founder and CEO of Tiller Rides), Mel Bainbridge, (co-founder of The Pack Australia) and Glen McIvor (founder and CEO of Solv).

The session was titled ‘The launch, the raise and the exit’ as each founder had had a significant launch, raise or exit over the past year.

I love startups, I love that part of it, and I also think [that] I don’t want to run a big business. You end up being an HR manager, which is not fun at all. But the actual startup part is really fun.
