Founders & Funders Summit
10 March 2022
9:00am - 5:30pm
Connecting the right people runs to the core of what we do. Despite a world where capital is accelerated via Zoom - nothing can replace face-to-face human connection in establishing and building some of the most significant relationships in our lives. We are bringing Australia's brightest founders and the investors who fund them - together - for a very special, very intimate, offsite experience in beautiful South Australian Wine Country. Join us for a unique opportunity to learn and connect to the ideas and people that matter. Discover young companies looking to make their dent in the universe. Expect honest panel discussions, connected industry lunches, office hour chats, random conversations, winery experiences and more. This is a rare chance to exit the ZOOM world, get offline and connect on a true human level with the people who may very well change your life.
DIVE INTO THE SCHEDULE
Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by our friendly squad who will check you into the event. Please note that we recommend having breakfast / coffee beforehand, as you will not be eating until lunch.
In order to make this a smooth process, we ask that you follow the direction of our squad and don't congregate while waiting for friends. Today is all about meeting new people, so we ask that you embrace the experience and be open to sitting next to anyone! --- The bus will depart at 10AM sharp. If you are running late, we can't wait. If you miss the bus, you will need to arrange your own transport to the venue ---
You'll be hosted by a selection of regional experts, who will share their rich knowledge of our winery regions.
To commence the day, you'll participate in a candid exploration of the current state of the venture landscape in Australia, in a regional and global context. What are the different roles that different types of investors play in the Australian ecosystem? What is needed to be world-class in terms of diversity, boards and investment process? We'll dive into this and more ..
Indulge your senses in a delicious soiree - connecting with other guests over lunch.

What are the pathways to building, growing and funding your startup? How can we do more to accelerate the systems change needed to broaden access to capital? Should the rules around who can and can't invest be reconsidered? You'll join us in this candid conversation set to help founders on their journey and provoke new perspectives amongst those who fund them.
After inspiring and provoking conversations, it's time to 'unwined' on the historic and iconic Seppeltsfield grounds.
We're thrilled to have teamed up with Innovation Bay, Australia's leading Investment Community, to host interactive office hours sessions set to unlock conversations & connections between our nation's leading investors and brightest startups.
After a full day of provoking conversation, good food and tasting - making new friends and connections we'll whisk you back to the city, where if you are so inclined, you can continue the fun by joining us for our kick-off Supper Party. Please note that access to the Supper Party requires a seperate ticket.
