York Butter Factory and Adventure Capital hosted ThisWeekInStartups hosted by Jason Calacanis on 1 December 2012 in Melbourne, Australia.

The format was a pitch battle between Melbourne and Sydney to see which city created the best startups. After many years of watching and learning from some of the best entrepreneurs out there being interviewed by @Jason, it was quite interesting to be ‘behind the scenes’ during a livestream and experience the show in action.

The result was a draw in the inter-City competition, with @jason preferring  RecruitLoop from Sydney and @Lons liking StethoCloud from Melbourne.
Second was Tweaky from Melbourne and WooBoard in third from Sydney.
Congratulations to all who pitched – it’s a tough gig taking @Jason on and coming out unscathed. As usual, lots of great advice on how to improve and create awesome pitches to get the core message across.

Here is how the event unfolded down under…
