If you have made $10m+ from investing in or working in Australian startups and you’re not spending some of your returns on supporting the next generation of startups then you need to have a good hard look at yourself. #startupaus

How often do you get to see 20 startup accelerators pitching to startups for their attention? This is a must-see event for startup founders across Australia, and another great @sparkfestivalau event. sparkfestival.co/2021-progra… #startupaus #SparkFestAU2021

Terrible news - @JohnBarilaroMP your support for the NSW startup ecosystem has been incredible, has left a great legacy and will be remembered. #startupaus #nswpol
As we emerge from lockdown, we must embrace this time as a new beginning for our State, and welcome the opportunity it presents for a refresh. I have decided now is the right time for me to hand the reins over to new leadership, and resign as Deputy Premier of NSW.

A gentle reminder there are many around us who are suffering, often silently and sometimes alone, with poor mental health because of the pandemic, our response to it and the continued uncertainty. Let's balance our conversations and broadcasts with news that also gives hope. 🌤️
