Simon Buckley from Trusted Avenues was Startup Central Victoria’s Meetup guest on 6 June 2023.
Simon who lives in the Macedon Ranges had a great startup idea – one that would encourage B2B through referrals without all the spam – and thought he had it sorted … until he participated in Startup Central Victoria’s Accelerator Program and discovered all the hidden pitfalls relating to trademarks, and business and domain names.
What would he do differently if he was starting another new startup? – participate in an accelerator program earlier in the idea development, and talk to more trusted people in his network.
The good news is that Simon’s online platform, Trusted Avenues, has now been successfully launched and he started by explaining what this platform provides for businesses.
