TweetChat – #StartupChat Melbourne Silicon Beach vs LA

By April 15, 2015 Advice for Businesses

As sponsors of Melbourne Silicon Beach, we participated in a TweetChat involving Melbourne’s StartUp community and LA.  The conversation explored the role of StartUps in both locations and the key challenges faced by these communities. TweetChats provide an opportunity to converse over Twitter, discussing topics and connecting people who may otherwise never have interacted. Given that the concept of StartUps in Australia is relatively new, there is the potential for collaboration with the establish LA StartUp Community to share knowledge and build capacity.

The TweetChat pitted Melbourne against LA to see who could generate the most conversation. Despite Melbourne Silicon Beach being relatively new to #StartUpChat, we’re pleased to say that we beat LA in the first round!
