22 Aug Government Announcements About Startups: A Step In The Right Direction
The Prime Minister and Federal Minister for Small Business Bruce Billson made a suprise visit here at the HUB Melbourne to announce some changes to the tax restrictions for ESOS (Employee Share Option Schemes) as part of its Industry Innovaiton and Comeptitiveness Agenda. Start Up Smart has summarised the changes well.
It was a great opportunity to have some dialogue (albeit brief) about the innovations happening in the start up community. Although there is along way to go especially toward dialogue around the potential of B Corporations and encouraging more investment in Australia, we felt it was an encouraging step forward. We look forward to being part of the ongoing discussions in the future.
