    Australia; 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 Mark Harbottle and Jason Sew Hoy from 99designs. Mark and Jason talks to us about the crowd-sourcing design space and how they were able to expand beyond Melbourne and into San Fransisco.

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