ABOUT

Join _SOUTHSTART in a lively discourse with top startup ecosystem voices from across Australia, as they share their thoughts on where we are as a community, as a nation, and as humans. In this session, we’ll take stock and discuss the challenge of navigating the shifting ground and tectonic shifts of building and scaling opportunities in the face of the unknown - not alone, but together. A celebration of Australian exceptionalism in the face of our only constant - change.

All ticket holders of our main friday events are invited to join us in the sunshine for closing drinks powered by our good friends at Twilio! We know that by the time happy hour comes around, you’ll have sparked new ideas & will likely be in need of a debrief with your newfound change comrades. So what better way to conclude the afternoon than with celebration of what's been. Don’t forget, Fringe & WOMAD are just around the corner if you want to continue the celebrations into the night & we’ll be in your inboxes shortly after to continue to support your journey in the years to come!
