adiosothumb Think it all happens in Silicon Valley? You’re wrong! – AdiosoAustralia; it’s not just about sandy beaches, beers and bbqs, Melbourne (and Sydney) have thriving digital and tech communities and this month, entrepreneur and technology journalist Hermione Way and her team at Techflufftv will be exploring the startup scene interviewing the hottest startups for The Next Web Australia’s Melbourne Silicon Beach Series.

Sponsored by Kodak, Silicon Beach Australia and The Next Web, Techfluff.tv decided to delve a little deeper into Melbourne’s startup scene and video interviewed ten of these companies.

This week we caught up with Tom Howard and Fenn Bailey from Adioso.

Adioso is an ex Y Combinator company and was a runner up in the 2009 The Next Web Australia “Plain Cool” Award!

Tom and Fenn talk to us about what makes their flight and price search engine different and how they were able to get funding for their great concept.

Stay tuned for next week as we will bring you an interview from Stateless Systems.
