AUSTRALIA’S LONGEST RUNNING FESTIVAL OF INNOVATION, IMAGINATION & IMPACT.

Established in 2013, _SOUTHSTART supports the passionate, curious and tenacious souls who choose to venture into the illusive world of creation. We mobilise the ideas, tools, networks and knowledge required to start, grow and scale the ideas needed to propel our planet & people forward.  We do this through the delivery of interactive & diverse experiences that recognise, celebrate & unlock the value of human connection.

DRIVING OUR COLLECTIVE FUTURE FORWARD.

Each day, we wake up to a new world. With this reality, comes a persistent need to evolve our ways of thinking, doing and being, in environments that foster deep societal progress. Our experiences provide rare moments in time to foster the deep & authentic connections required to incubate and grow the wild ideas that improve the state of our collective wellbeing.

_SOUTHSTART is about people coming together, collaborating, talking ideas, and passing stories through generations.

Karl Telfer, Co-Founder at Yellaka

It’s been a super productive week at _SOUTHSTART. Great insights and learnings for me to take back home.

Anna El Tahchy, CTO at Nourish Ingredients

The energy in the room was amplified. The smiles multiplied. The connections strengthened. We all ended up on the winning team.

Julie Trell, Chief Play Officer at Playful Purpose

You guys throw a mean party. Nice to be a part of it. Thanks for the fun!

Simon Thomsen, Editor at Startup Daily

An incredible week at _SOUTHSTART, revelling in human connections, stories and new ideas.

Jeanette Cheah, CEO & Founder at HEX

The [Fintech] event I went to translated to real $$$ for us. [That] is the real impact of _SOUTHSTART events. Thank you!

Alison Nikula, Care App

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!

Lauren Black, Atlassian Foundation

I was struck by the uniqueness of this event as it started and continued to focus on us as humans – not just superstar entrepreneurs, but humans. We need this approach if entrepreneurs are to deliver the social and economic changes we need in the world.

Dr Sarah Pearson – Investor, Board Director, Advisor & Innovation Leader

All the team at _SOUTHSTART did an amazing job of making me feel welcome in their city, and the event itself was one of the most organised I've had the privilege of being involved in.

Cameron Adams – Co-Founder at Canva
