Charities supporting supporters
Charities could ask their taxpaying supporters to help an innovative startup and claim $10,000 tax offset. The startup might get $6,000 per taxpayer and the taxpayers get $4,000 each. If they give the $4,000 to the charity they still make money from their $4,000 tax deduction. The charity ensures that they cannot lose this $4,000 in the startup arrangements. The charity should expect to get most of the $4,000, maybe more if the startup fails and maybe much more if the startup succeeds.

Mister RYE: Organic rye drinking straws made in Australia
Organic, biodegradable drinking straws - SA greentech start-up Mister RYE launched their campaign today 25October. Founded by French entrepreneurs Marion Vigot and Alexis Branlard, Mister Rye is one of the first recipients of Supporting Innovation in South Australia (SISA) program. “We found no beach that was not littered with plastic, and decided there had to be a better way. Our research led us to find out that rye was the original straw, used hundreds of years before plastic.We were determined to source our materials locally, and actively searched for organic farmers to ensure the safety of the finished product.” https://bit.ly/2MLr0mH

Writing the script for billion dollar industries
Tech23 this week saw Lucy Cooke present her startup, Spacedraft. With film studios, Amazon, Netflix and Apple spending billions annually producing new titles and the Gaming industry continuing to grow, bringing complex visions to life accurately and without delay is a serious business. Every creative endeavour faces friction, loss and frustration when it tries to deliver with nothing but a paper script and sticky notes, whether it be film, game or VR/AR production. Spacedraft solves for these issues, connecting the vision to production and producers, sharing updates and edits with the entire team. Quite literally, watch this space. https://spacedraft.com.au/

DNA as a living USB.
Could your next USB actually need watering and sunlight and yet last for a millennium? Yes, if Twist Bioscience have anything to do with it. Although not technically a start-up at six years in and listed, one of their developments is worth a look, as the sector is seeing the same reduction in costs that saw computing power boom As Twist put it, “If there was an opportunity where you could put a copy of your DNA in a hard drive that would last for 1000 years for $50, that would really be the ultimate backup for your data.” https://twistbioscience.com/products/storage
