Oliver MilmanToday on StartupSmart, we look at whether the boom in co-working among Australian start-ups is increasing the risk of intellectual property being stolen.


While incubators and shared offices are adding to the networking opportunities available to new ventures, there is concern that ideas will be more easily copied.

So, should start-ups be wary when sharing space with other businesses, or is the fear of IP loss overblown? We speak to the key industry players to get their views.

Elsewhere, sales guru Simon Harris outlines the key qualities you need in a rookie salesperson and we reveal the latest round in the Cheesecake Shop franchisee fight.

Finally, do you dream of quitting your job and starting up, but are worried about when and how to take the leap? If so, our free webinar tomorrow may be for you.
