Silicon Valley Success for Savvy Aussies

The Sydney Morning Herald talks with Ryan Junee, who successfully sold the company he co-founded with Simon Ratner and Julian Frumar, Omnisio, to Google earlier this year.

Ryan echoes what he said at the the 2008 ANZA Gateway to the US Summit last month when he was featured as the “Australian Success Story in Silicon Valley”. He says that Silicon Valley provides all the expertise start-ups need.

“On top of that, there’s an amazing tolerance for failure – since it’s expected that the majority of start-ups will fail.”

Yet, his advice for others dreaming of feat like what he and his partners accomplished with Omnisio, is simple and straighforward.

“Just do it. Don’t waste too much time writing a formal business plan, worrying about the state of the market, worrying about potential competitors – you are going to change and correct your course as you go. The best thing you can do is start.”
