G20 Global Cafe, ‘This,’ Project Tripod and Startup Catalyst

Here’s what’s what in the week that was!

Brisbane’s G20 Global Cafe kicked off the crazy world summit that was, and drew 75 international experts in technology, health, economics and/or tourism to our fair city. Central to our interests were “The Digital Age – Entrepreneurship & Innovation” events: check out Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian’s speech on digital disruption here and information technology specialist Frank Farrall’s talk on evolving regional responses here.

A brand new, terrifyingly simple challenger to Facebook’s throne, ‘This,’ launched for beta-stage testing. While these sites are becoming a dim-a-dozen (see: Ello) , do check out a great overview of whatever This is at PandoDaily or an example of the admittedly pretty cool site here.

In a first for Australia, Creative³ Pitch winners Project Tripod headed to Denmark for the creative entrepreneurship world championships. The unfortunately didn’t make it through to the semi-finals, but what a stellar job to get that far!

Finally, the Startup Catalyst team officially left for their annual Silicon Valley trip! They’ll be experiencing a crash course on (almost) everything the high-tech hub has to offer, so keep up to date on their progress if you’re into Google, Facebook, Startup Weekend, Meetups and the like.
