Some of my Favorite Victorian Based Startups and Investors

I’ve been down in Melbourne volunteering / giving back to a startup community I love. There is an amazing amount of effort here on the community level (Universities, Government (I’m down here because of the great people at LaunchVic) and Trade Organizations) which is fantastic but sometimes that overpowers the great work of the startups and individual investors that drive the community.
With that in mind I asked a few friends of their favorite startups and this list came together. It isn’t complete. Not even near complete. As you can see by the list there are gaming companies, healthcare, design, fashion, logistics, and more than a few quality investors.

“Developing the BajaBoard was like trying to fit an off-road car under a snowboard. It wasn’t just a matter of putting fat tires onto a skateboard – everything was designed from the ground up, including riding dynamics. The board handles partly like a snowboard and partly like a motorbike.”
