Ben Longstaff has written an excellent opinion piece on how to make the South Australian startup ecosystem stronger.

Here are some of my favourite quotes:

Funding a solution that is looking for a problem to solve just prolongs the inevitable. Startups need customers.

Instead we paid $1.3 million to a Victorian firm to design a doorway out of South Australia.

Hackathon events like Unearthed and D3 are a start in the government engaging with local talent.

Thanks Ben for your excellent contributions, as always!
