Australia is at significant risk of a digital ‘invasion’ by overseas tech companies keen to disrupt the economic status quo.

UPDATE ~ A few comments have winged their way to me since this was published. The diagram is not supposed to show every person or event involved in Perth's startup scene (that would involve 300+ people/events), but give a high level overview of what's going on right now, and has been around for a year or two. Also, a comment about the lack of women on the diagram - is true, Paula Taylor is an omission, she has been Executive Director of West Tech for a few years. Jane Garrett and Danelle Cross are also instrumental in Curtin Ignition. However, the scene is rather male-dominated. I went to Morning Startup this morning, of 50 people there, over 40 were male. No doubt I will update this from time to time!
