Charlie, having been through the lows and highs of entrepreneurship with his own tech start-up, now spends some of his time advising, investing, mentoring, and promoting some of the most promising emerging startups coming out of Perth.

Untitled Perth was lucky enough to catch up with Charlie and chat about his background and first coming to Australia, the local startup scene, common mistakes early startups make, the lack of funding here, and he had a surprisingly accurate, albeit dry, startup joke for us.
