My week with Graeme Speak
Graeme has packed his suitcase and headed out to Sydney this week to participate in SydStart, where startups and their entrepreneurs meet to exchange ideas with the aim of changing the world. There’s investors there too looking for the best-of-the-best.
GoPC was short listed in the top 15 out of 220 startups.
This event is the largest tech startup conference, expo and community in Australia and is well on the way to being the largest in our region.
SydStart is run by the Pete Cooper and the tech startup ecosystem for the whole community. Over 1,000 conference and expo delegates are expected at the next event with around 100 companies exhibiting. Between 50 and 100 people will speak or pitch their product plus there will be 200 competitors in the qualifying days before the main event.
Participants include tech entrepreneurs, geeks, UX designers, investors, educators, accelerators, incubators and co-working providers. Take the visual tour.
Graeme is presenting Raindrop at SydStart which co-ordinates with the product release just last week. Raindrop is a cocooned browser that protects your identity on untrusted PCs. It is secure, anonymous and untraceable.
For example, overseas travellers who need to access their bank account in an Internet Cafe can log into Raindrop knowing that their bank login details are safe and sound. Check it out.
