81. Matt Hart – Soter Analytics

Steve and Brodie talk with Matt Hart, co-founder of Perth-founded smart wearables tech company Soter Analytics, who is passionate about reducing injuries at work.

Scaling the business to more than 50 staff over the past five years, the company is now headquartered in London, with a development team in Estonia and an office in Perth. Their most recent funding round was more than A$16M. The boy from Armadale has done well, and does not hold back on his views about developing a startup in Perth.

“…When you look at Estonia, they say ‘Look out of Estonia from day one’; because one and a half million people live there. If you’re going to make a tech business, a startup, you’ve got to think worldwide from day one. And I think that’s the same in Perth.” ~ Matt Hart.
