@techcouncil_aus panel Q: What is Australia's reputation in tech globally? @minarad from @differenthq added access to finance and VC. COVID changed expectations of being based overseas. Now can have relationships over Zoom. People need to see exits to give belief. /15

@techcouncil_aus Chair Robyn Denholm adds that to have a growing tech sector, you need to partner with University. AU has an underappreciated asset in Universities & TAFE. Our globally respected engineers are seeding the world in expertise. It starts in our university sectors /17

@minarad from @differenthq added that it is not just new talent but who that talent is going to learn from. eg., You do not go to school and get a degree in product management. Different way of thinking about tech startups versus large corporate environment. /18
