Don’t be afraid of what you don’t know
Great article written by Pita Ellis
I love hearing about Australian Startups playing the big game and getting noticed.
Australia Startups tend to shy away from the limelight, it is not our culture to talk about ourselves too much. Aussies can also be harsh on each other, Americans are much better at dishing out high fives and back pats to fellow entrepreneurs having a go.
The downside to keeping quiet when building your empire is that it appears from the outside looking in that there is not much going on in the Australian Startup scene. There is, yet we only hear about a small percentage of people kicking goals. I think it’s time we change a few things culturally.
I read a great article of the success of Aussie Startup Stackla. When I read founder Damien Mahoney’s comment on it struck a chord with me. I used to be afraid of what I didn’t know and saw it as a weakness which I hated. I have since learnt to trust my network, ask questions, be grateful of help and always surround myself with smart, like minded people.
We have some great Startups here in Oz, with the best yet to emerge. I’m keen to see better knowledge exchange and a strong support network in our community.
Ivan’s comment :- hopefully we can assist by creating forums of collaboration , learning and growth.
