Oliver MilmanToday on StartupSmart, we take a look at Perth’s start-up scene, in the second of our capital city profiles.

While the resources boom in Western Australia has seen mining accelerate, and in some cases distort, the state’s economy, there is a growing band of entrepreneurs who are determined to build businesses not based around digging stuff out of the ground.

We’ve spoken to Perth’s key start-up players to find out the city’s trends, strengths, weaknesses and business hubs.

Elsewhere, mentor Peter Vitale has some timely tips on how to avoid a lawsuit from Christmas party shenanigans and we have a round-up of the web’s best business content in Weekend Reads.

Finally, we have a pre-Christmas treat with a free eBook containing a selection of Taskmaster’s top marketing tips. You can download it here.
