Today on StartupSmart, we lament the lack of concerted government support for start-ups and outline some areas in which Australia’s most promising innovators can be aided.



As business advisory guru Marc Peskett explains, last week’s budget didn’t contain much for start-ups, with the government failing to introduce the kind of measures that have boosted budding entrepreneurs in the UK and elsewhere.

Peskett gives his diagnosis as well as suggesting some initiatives that will make the most tangible difference to new businesses.

Elsewhere, investor Philip Hall ponders the merits of having a geographically removed backer and we profile, an ambitious start-up that aims to cut through the clutter of running a business.
