To better understand our ecosystem, startup founders, investors and supporters should be champions of better measurement.
Data collection, assessment and analysis is the first step of fostering more vibrant ecosystems and stronger companies. Data collection is a way for everyone to contribute to the community.
BlueChilli is hosting a panel discussion with Jager McConnell, CEO of Crunchbase, and leaders in Australia’s tech startup community about the importance of having data and how that drives growth.
Moderator – Gen George (founder of tamme, Skilld and co-founder of LMBDW)
