Every week on the Startup Daily TV show, we talk to more than two dozen founders, CEOs, investors and experts about what’s happening in tech.

Now you can catch the best of the show with the weekly podcast, SUDS.


Welcome to the new, improved SUDS!

Each week host Simon Thomsen has a special guest join him to discuss the big news of the week, tell their story and also tackle a big idea in their area of expertise, before we run through the TV show’s highlights.

This week our special guests are Grace Sai and expat Australian Marc Allen founders of Singapore-based Unravel Carbon, which helps companies decarbonise rapidly.

With grocery delivery startup Voly cutting staff and shelving expansion plans, we discuss what lies ahead for startups.

The pair as in Sydney as part of the City of Sydney’s Visiting Entrepreneur program, a 10-day festival of 17 events, on now. We talk about their journey (they met at one of Sai’s previous startup ventures), the future climate tech and the planet, and hear from another visiting entrepreneur, HYPR’s Tim Kentley Klay, who was on the Startup Daily show this week talking artificial intelligence and founder mindset.

This week we also spoke to Mandalay Ventures cofounder Mark Gustowski about their NRMA-backed $50 million agtech VC fund.

And combining the environmental theme with innovation and a favourite subject, wine, we spoke to Mitchell Taylor from family-owned Taylor’s Wines, about their new One Small Step range, which comes in recycled PET bottles that are 83% lighter than glass, and take up 30% less space, cutting transport and energy emissions.

A giant leap we’ll raise a glass to.
