Continuing on from my previous post regarding women in startups and advocacy, another step in the evolution is advice and aid. I’m forever keen on sharing my learnings with others, so was happy to help when asked to be a mentor for a new Aussie initiative called PushStart. PushStart is a new set of community-focused, mentor-driven, activities to help grow Australian tech startups, and the tech startup community.

Combining Aussie tech startup people, seed funding and community events, PushStart plans to give local tech entrepreneurs help to start, grow and succeed.

Although appearing to be Sydney-centric, this is not the intention of PushStart. So, if you’re in other parts of the country and would like to be involved, register your interest here.

I’m going to taking questions from mentees on marketing, business strategy, product definition and community management. More info on my profile here.

  1. G-Day Kate… My name is Don Johnson and it would seem that you know of me from my reverbnation music web site. I have not made contact with you before because I am not a very good computer opperater. I think that is my reason anyway. Or perhaps you have not grabed my interest because I have not made any attempt to contact you. But today while checking my reverb site I see that you are one of my fans…I think you are anyway… I must say that you seem to be a very very out there sort of a person. That’s not to say that I am not also one such person. Today I learn from your page that you are a marketing expert… Well you do not know that I am a painter as in artist. I had a gallery in Victoria and sold many of my works through-out Melbourne. I have seen you as maybe the right lady to perhaps be my own marketing expert. My art is very very very way out to the point where I live only to change the face of art. You may be able to make contact with people in Melbourne that would remember me. At this stage I shall say no more and await your reply. Mine is a very strange art which changes the face of art completely so dont think you have seen anything like it before. I have been said to be crazy many times, but not all want to change the world. I have written ten books about the changes I have discovered and it is never going to stop… Just like my song writing..So Young KATE. Do you have time for a complete nutter. I write with no other reason than to make contact with you and express an idea that came to me while reading your page. Please do not make anymore of my short note to you. I remain yours Always in Art and Song…DON JOHNSON…
