    Anyone going to this? I am. Looks like some good presenters and attendees already. Go! - it's relatively inexpensive too

    I am going to be away at the time, but if I was here I would definitely go. Pete Cooper who is the organiser is a great guy with a lot of respect in the start up community - just see the speaker list and guest list!

    I was going to go to SydStart tomorrow but unfortunately something has come up last minute and I can't go now :(

    If anyone wants a free ticket please post here and I'll PM you the details. It's a single Standard Attendee ticket.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    How were the pitches, and which idea won?

    Loved it. That's my favourite show, that and Shark Tank. The entrepreneur coming out in me I guess.

    One thing that stood out to me was they all go for brandable names over anything generic.

    Yes i noticed that and invariably .com or an alternative cctld like .co or .it even.

    I think that's probably because pretty much all the pitchers have global aspirations for their ventures.

    However, perhaps one of the most successful presenters there, Matt Barrie, has certainly made the most of his generic domain ... Freelancer.com (which he bought in 2009)

    I was disappointed to have not been able to go due to family reasons. I was really looking forward to it :(

    Next year hopefully
