@StartupPerth is a micro news service, amplifying news about and from Perth startups and innovation.

Using Twitter as the platform, @StartupPerth was created and is managed solely to promote Western Australian startups, particularly in the tech space (but open to others).

Started in August 2015, the account has an audience of more than 8,500, proving public interest in the Perth startup ecosystem.


To have your Perth based startup featured, simply follow and tweet the account with your details. To find out more about Startup Perth, I recommend you read these two posts;

There are four types of content;
