Let's be blunt: It's a website for truthseekers

Niles Toh thinks people need honest assessments -- unvarnished opinions from folks outside their trusted friends, from voices beyond your inner circle. That's why he cobbled together a website that aspires to give people what they need rather than what they want to hear.

What startups can teach project managers (Execute or die!)

Unless you're involved in a startup, it's unlikely that you work in a highly adaptable organisation where change is normal and built into everything you do. In fast growth companies, founders, investors and staff plan on change. It is one of their greatest strengths and allows disruptive companies to topple larger competitors. But the sad fact is that, for the majority of us, this is not our reality.

Australian innovation lets the people of PNG pay for electricity using mobile phone credits...

The rapid adoption of this service highlights the suitability of mobile payment technology in developing countries, which often do not have access to the same payment methods and services available in developed markets.

David Koch on personal branding, Julia Gillard and the National Small Business Summit

We all know David Koch as the affable, and sometimes goofy, host of Sunrise. As such, it's often easy to forget that the Channel Seven star and household name initially made his mark in the media world as a finance journalist, turned magazine publisher. Few people also appreciate the marketing thought that goes into a television program like Sunrise and the creation of a personal brand like 'Kochie'.

Startup School scrapes attendee tweets to create eBook

What I personally found so interesting about this item of digital media is that it was created by the crowd and assembled by attendees (or one particularly passionate attendee in particular). And, despite having not attended the event, I suspect that it is more helpful than most of the glossy 'take homes' I find shoved in most 'goodie-bags' post most conferences.

Why this angel is not investing in social networks

A young entrepreneur asked me an interesting question, “If Twitter hadn’t happened yet and you had the chance to invest in it at start-up, would you?” As it turns out this is quite relevant as I did have the chance to invest in Twitter during a very early funding round through my own networks in Silicon Valley.

Australian Home-Based Business Awards 2010

The Australian Home-Based Business Awards (AHBBA) highlight the quality of home-based businesses in Australia and offer the opportunity for small businesses to gain recognition for their products and services.

When someone asks, What do you do for a living? Do you tell them...

When I finally screwed up the courage to leave the world of corporate cubicles and launch my own start-up company, it presented me with an interesting problem – what do I say when people ask me what I do? At first, I liked calling myself an entrepreneur. It made me feel dashing and innovative, a heady mix of Zorro and Richard Branson. However, now I am not so sure.

Anthill’s Five Most Influential Posts

They were chosen for the way they influenced us (yes, Anthill) and, therefore, the way we report to you. Sure, it's a slightly narcissistic email but, in a strange way, our chosen five also seem to say a great deal about the changing nature of business in Australia. The five are presented in no particular order.

As a Master of Throwing Rocks, I understand why boomers might want to attack young entrepreneurship programs. But if these loud-mouths can forget about unfair for a moment (yes, it’s not nice losing your place as the centre of attention), they might learn why programs of this type are so important.

Are you an ‘ideas man’. I hope it’s a common affliction.

I know myself well enough now to succumb to the rush of a new concept 'that has never been done before', before heading back to the here-and-now. I figure that this sort of activity, although no help to my current workload, is good for keeping my mind active, rather than feeling guilty about never being able to put these ideas into action.
