Summary: Follow four businesses as they travel to Silicon Valley, Shanghai and back to Australia, as they attempt to rise from local player to world beater.
In this episode we speak to Simon Cant, founder of $100m venture capital fund, Reinventure, Tim Fung, CEO of Airtasker and Rob Koczkar of Social Ventures Australia to pick apart how our Businesses of Tomorrow can scale to the next level. Our founders, Will Davies, Hana Krawchuk, Christian Damstra and Jordan O'Reilly, respond to their concerns and reflect on how they, and their businesses, have changed since they went on the program.

Our four businesses have returned from their trip visiting Silicon Valley and Shanghai and are brimming with ideas. Car Next Door needs to convince investors to tip money into their capital raise; Love to Dream is trying to bag Target in the US as their next big retailer; Damstra Technology has opened up US office and is trying to get a new client and HireUp is looking to see how they can keep their disability support platform as safe as possible. The stakes are high but the rewards are bigger. Music credits: Where It Goes, Jahzzar Be Careful I've Stood On It Too, Bitbasic Candlepower, Chris Zabriskie Dawn II, Swelling Happiness, Scott Buckley
Our businesses of tomorrow fly from Silicon Valley to Shanghai to see the most dynamic country in the world. China is growing rapidly and its middle class moving up the value chain to spend more on both goods and services. We meet some Australian founders who are kicking goals with some very interesting ideas and discover how fitting into China's five-year plans is good way to think about entering such a competitive market.
