sydstartlogo‘The biggest startup conference in Australia’, Syd Start 2015 (October 29-30) brought an impressive line up of international speakers and attracted over 2000 people to Sydney’s Town Hall.

The Anchor Team hosted a booth at the two-day event, showcasing our involvement in the start-up community and some of our clients that have grown into massively successful global businesses, most notably the Silicon Valley behemoths GitHub and TestFlight. The event featured speakers such as Mark Bouris (Yellow Brick Road etc), Ray Chan (9GAG), Sean Ellis (, Jane Lu (Showpo) and Anchor’s own co-founder Andrew Rogers, sharing insights into the success and failures of an entrepreneur.

The event also gave us a chance to talk to tech startups looking to adopt Cloud/Agile development methodologies about outsourcing the DevOps management of their AWS infrastructure to Anchor, with the goal of building and releasing software faster, with less stress.

As well as some interesting start-up pitch competitions, the event provided a great forum for learning, networking and exposure to the products and services that exist to help new businesses and ideas get off the ground.
