WE SHINE LIGHTS THROUGH BRILLIANT MINDS, TO CREATE A BETTER TOMORROW.
I woke up this morning thinking, what the heck did I just experience? Very grateful to have met you all and will be back next year unconditionally. Thanks you absolute legends!

_SOUTHSTART has evolved into one of Australia’s most unique festival experiences for founders, funders & operators. We continuously explore the realms of impact, technology and innovation, to shape a better future for our planet and its people. Our community is fuelled by curious hearts, daring souls, and evolving beings, united by a shared interest in tackling global issues, embracing experiential activities, and sharing in meaningful conversations. While we generally see the title’s of CEO / Director / Founder / Investor / Manager walk through our doors .. there’s no “one size fits all” to who is welcome to attend our events. What binds us is a collective passion for solving deep problems and forging a future for good.
