In Conversation With Michael Batko
15 September 2020
12:00pm - 1:00pm
In this conversation you'll hear from Michael Batko, the CEO of Startmate - Australia's best mentor-driven seed fund and accelerator. After following the traditional path of graduating business school and following a path in into consulting and corporate life - Batko fell in love with the startup world - growing two start-ups from a team of 2 to 5 (http://madpaws.com.au/) and 10 to 50+ (http://expert360.com/), including a $AUD 13M Series B capital raise. From there, he discovered a passion in helping many businesses grow via Startmate. The _southstart Connection Series is hosted by technology writer and journalist Joan Westenberg. ____________________ In 2020, how we communicate and share experiences has been challenged in ways we never predicted. Handshakes aren't the norm. Video calls are more common than coffee catch-ups. And many of those who have adjusted to a remote working lifestyle won't return to offices ever again. Through all of this, we've seen a desire to break the boundaries of what it means to be connected to each other and to common ideas, and a longing to find the humanity and warmth in tech-enabled interactions. That's where we come in. We've rallied some of the brightest former _southstart speakers - across tech, the startup world and the creative industries - to help you make sense of this new world we've found ourselves in. The conversations are free to watch and will be live-streamed online, direct to you. We're calling it the _southstart Connection Series. Connection details will be emailed upon registration.
