Communicating and networking with others

Recently a business colleague Matt Freedman facilitated a discussion on at which there was a general concensus that there is a lack of myspace type networks for business. Matt indicated that comes close but is very cluttered and you have to pay for a lot of the features.

In response, Matt decided to kick off a social network for Australia entrepreneurs. you can find it here

Join in either of these communities and contribute and share with others.
