A few weeks ago, The Fetch’s social media channels started to tease about a pending re-launch of the product after 10 months of very little activity.
The most interesting aspect about this funding is that it is for a media company that deals in email. And if you are to believe the rhetoric most people hate emails.
This week Andy sits down and chats with Kate Kendall, founder of The Fetch. This unique media startup is all about letting professionals know what is on across the tech, creative and business scenes. Kendall, one of Australia’s most influential individuals within Australia’s digital space has expanded the reach of The Fetch quickly with subscribers across Australia, Europe, USA and New Zealand.
Over the last few months people have been voting, and our judges have been judging for our founder of the year competition, a lot of the judging was completed manually [taking a lot longer than expected, on the upsides we learnt what we need to do next time to get things speeding along] Our founder of the year for 2012 has been named Kate Kendall, founder of The Fetch.
One of the most annoying things about a rapidly growing startup scene like we have in Australia is keeping tabs on all the events, seminars and conferences that are happening around the place. Quite often I will be sitting in the office, flick over to twitter and notice a hashtag with some brilliant content attached to it and think Damn! – I wish was there at that event.
