Aussie startup carnival

VS Consulting Group is running a carnival of startups in Australia. I think the internet offers a huge opportunity for Australians to start a web based business. We speak the same language (of sorts) as the biggest internet user base in the world, the United States and have pretty good ties with the other markets in Asia which will soon take over the US – namely China, Japan and South Korea.

Australia has a solid economy and a number of successful entrepreneurs but nothing like an Amazon, Google or Facebook. With so much money being made in property and the mining industry, it is not much of surprise that internet companies receive little attention in the media.

I have entered my Australia Forum in the carnival. I don’t think I will win any points for originality, but I think the forum is starting to a useful resource for people wanting to live or travel to Australia. They are currently looking for sponsors of the event.
