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.

Every Friday, co-hosts Simon Thomsen and Eliot Hastie, offer the weekly washup from Startup Daily TV.


It’s back to the office for Google staff from April 4, but they will be able to do their job from home at least two days each week, the tech giant decided. We talk about the hybrid work models being embraced by companies.

Meanwhile BNPL market leader Klarna posted a net loss of nearly A$1 billion last year. With BNPL stock prices plunging, margins shrinking and growth slowing, is consolidation of the sector on the cards?

Speaking of consolidation, Senator Andrew Bragg spoke to us about the impact of regulation on the crypto market, saying he believes the current 600 crypto exchanges could shrink to 20 or 30 once government regulation kicks in. He also shared his views on the exchanges refusing to cease trade in Russia.

Peter Goldsworthy, GM of startups at LaunchVic told us about the 30×30 program, which is looking to help turn 30 scale-up companies into unicorns (worth $1bn) by 2030.

Omar de Silva, founder of global edtech startup FourthRev took us through how he tackled raising $11.2 million in a Series A from global investors. 

For International Women’s Day, we spoke to Aprill Allen from Tractor Ventures, the revenue-based financing alternative for startups about her investing journey and why so many couples-led startups turn to Tractor for capital.

And Stella Cocaro, co-founder of proptech startup Canibuild shared her advice for women getting into non-traditional sectors after her startup raised $8 million.
