SPECIAL REPORT: Diagnosing Australia’s start-up disconnect

We have capital, we have talent, and we have ambition; so why isn't Australia an innovation hub? We put the question to three of the country’s leading start-ups.

It would be folly to try and replicate the success of Silicon Valley, but with an economy in a state of transition Australia should, at the very least, be trying to learn a few lessons from the spiritual home of tech start-ups.

We have capital, we have workers and we have an increasingly competitive dollar; if there was ever a time for Aussie entrepreneurs to shine, it’s now.

But the point is, they’re not.
