The Startup Playbook

Connecting you to the best entrepreneurs, investors and resources from around the world

Ep053 – Pete Cooper (Founder – SydStart) on the old and new economy

In Episode 53 of The Startup Playbook Podcast, I interview Pete Cooper, the Founder of SydStart, StartSoc and iCentralCo.

Pete has been one of the pillars in growing the Australian startup ecosystem, particularly in his hometown of Sydney.

He is probably best known for founding the SydStart Conference (now known as StartCon), the first tech conference of it’s kind in the country and he actively mentors, invests and is helping to develop an ecosystem to provide the best chances for startups to succeed.

In the episode we talk about a range of topics including his transition from a corporate career path to being heavily involved with startups, how to find mentors, how to build communities and how to get started in the startup ecosystem.
