The DOCUMENTARY

About The Series

The Australian startup movement has grown and matured a lot over the past two decades. This special series of Welcome to Day One will highlight the history of the Australian startup economy.

In partnership with some of Australia’s key innovation communities, we will uncover how the ecosystem has evolved from it’s most nascent period into a thriving community. 

This 6-part audio documentary and it’s accompanying 150+ interviews will be a deep-dive into the startup scene both past and present, and take an exciting look at the future of Australia’s technological and economic transformation. 

Join us on this exciting journey, celebrating what has been accomplished and asking some hard questions about where we’re heading and if we’re on the right track.
