7 March 2023
Join us at START(UP) ACADEMY (7th); a summit for future founders. Created to ignite minds, challenge perspectives, and expose young people to the world of entrepreneurship. Early Bird tickets are now available for educators and students
The ODYSSEY ticket is the “main” festival ticket, i.e “General Admission”. It includes immediate access to:
CAMP(US) – March 8th, Garden of Unearthly Delights
SOCIAL – March 8th, Varden Ave Street Party
VILLAGE – March 9th, Lake Breeze Winery, Langhorne Creek (transport included).
Post-Purchase, you will unlock the ability to add to your experience through upgrade event options.
The SCALEUP, ANGEL & CORPORATE // ODYSSEY tickets are designed as targeted options for attendees who will be going to a SUMMIT instead of the CAMP(US) event. However, we only have a handful of these other options so recommend that anyone who doesn’t fall within those categories, purchases a general ODYSSEY pass. Please note, however, that calling this “general admission” is only done for simplicity. At a baseline, it contains an elevated level of value for founders, funders & operators to connect.
Absolutely! ODYSSEY is your gateway to enjoying our multi-day festival experience; which has been designed to provide a high level of value from the get-go. You’ll enjoy all the perks of a “Summit” experience – from catering to bus transfers, to add-on options – with the key difference being that you will engage in content & learning pathways that have been optimised to suit your needs. For example, our ANGEL SUMMIT will dive into specific conversations & niche pathways that may only resonate with that particular audience. But you’ll reap the benefits of connecting with the core community of attendees of that experience, at our VILLAGE event.
ANGEL // ODYSSEY is a 2-day ticket package that unlocks your access to attend the ANGEL SUMMIT on 8th March, in addition to our VILLAGE event on 9th March. This has been carefully curated to ensure that you have ample time to deep dive into your niche area of interest, while also connecting with broader festival attendees and perhaps most importantly; the founders who will be attending VILLAGE. Upon purchasing an ANGEL // ODYSSEY ticket, you will be invited to register your interest to participate in Rampersand’s GIANT WARM INTRO; aka office hours with early-stage, pre-seed founders who are looking for mentorship and support.
CORPORATE // ODYSSEY is a 2-day ticket package that unlocks your access to attend our SOCIAL event on Vardon Avenue on 8th March, in addition to the CORPORATE INNOVATION SUMMIT on 9th March. This has been carefully curated to ensure that you have the opportunity to connect with our broader festival attendees as a precursor to your curated experience, noting that the SUMMIT will take place at the same location as our VILLAGE event, so you may just find yourself wanting to continue a conversation with new friends you met the night prior!
SCALEUP // ODYSSEY is a 2-day ticket package that unlocks your access to attend the SCALEUP SUMMIT on 8th March, in addition to our SOCIAL event on Vardon Avenue that night. You will then attend our VILLAGE event on 9th March. This has been carefully curated to ensure that you have ample time to deep dive into your niche area of interest, while also connecting with broader festival attendees and perhaps most importantly; key networks of support to help bolster your learnings from your SUMMIT experience.
Add-on options will be available for ticket holders very soon! Get your ticket today to be the first to know when we release tickets for these experiences. Please note that they will be available on a first-in, best-dressed basis.
