Bright Ideas Summit

09 / 03 / 2022

_SOUTHSTART and Future Anything are proud to host the Bright Ideas Summit 2022. Designed in collaboration with educators, The Bright Ideas Summit is designed for school groups and will engage young people in a fun and fast-paced day of listening, learning, and doing. This engaging and hands-on event takes place on Wednesday 9 March at Adelaide Town Hall. The Bright Ideas Summit will also be livestreamed online for you to join us from classrooms around the country- and beyond. Students will hear from some of Australia’s most exciting and inspiring innovators and changemakers, as well as explicitly developing their entrepreneurial thinking and human-centred design skills. Our epic speaker lineup will be announced soon.

_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.

Got questions?

Our ticketing is currently optimised as a multi-day experience, to ensure that you get the most value out of your attendance. If availability is an issue, please contact us here.

Due to limited places, it is only possible to attend one summit experience at this point in time. To register your interest in attending two summit experiences, please contact us here.

To be considered for a ticket upgrade, please contact us here. We will respond to your request within 2-3 business days.

Our ticketing is currently optimised as a multi-day experience, to ensure that you get the most value out of your attendance. If availability is an issue, please contact us here.

To be considered for a ticket upgrade, please contact us here. We will respond to your request within 2-3 business days.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Our Summits are created specifically for different streams of attendees;

 

  • ANGEL SUMMIT – Targeted Track for active Angel Investors, 8th March, National Wine Centre
  • SCALEUP SUMMIT – Targeted Track for Series A+ Founders, 8th March, National Wine Centre
  • CORPORATE INNOVATION – Targeted Track for Corporate Executives, 9th March, Lake Breeze Winery (transport included)

These happen alongside of our flagship ODYSSEY events, but are ticketed separately.

 

To attend these Summits you will need to qualify and you will be asked to do this prior to your ticket purchase going through.

 

If you’d like more information or have questions regarding the summits please email amy@southstart.co

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.

Get in touch with us at HELLO@SOUTHSTART.CO

Accredited media passes are available to some outlets and individuals attending upon request. To request a media pass, please email: STORIES@SOUTHSTART.CO

Upon purchasing a ticket to _SOUTHSTART // ODYSSEY, we will share a bunch of hints & tips to ensure that you get the most out of our experience. We will also drive many initiatives of our own, to take the thinking out of the process for you! Some handy steps that we do like to recommend at the first instance, include:

  1. Write down your goals for the event
  2. Research who you want to meet
  3. Plan ahead
  4. Have your Linkedin ready to rock & roll for new contacts
  5. Practice your pitch (who are you, what are you looking for help with, what can you help someone else with)
  6. Put down the Phone on event day! (Although we’re not adverse to some love on social media 😉 )
  7. Be curious & open minded
  8. Remember what you learn
  9. Follow up on your new connections
  10. Enjoy the event

We endeavour to ensure that our festival is accessible to our audience, but we know that there is not a “one size fits all” approach to accessibility. Upon purchasing a ticket to _SOUTHSTART ODYSSEY, we will ask you if you have any particular accessibility requirements. Your response will then be considered by our planning & production team, to ensure that we are catering to your requirements. If you have additional concerns about our ability to cater to your needs – please contact us at HELLO@SOUTHSTART.CO

Different journeys, different options! We are extremely careful in the way we structure our events and ticket options. Our aim is to create not just opportunity but THE RIGHT opportunities. Our ticket options start with foundation events and then you are offered add-on options to make sure you get exactly what you need our of our events.

Tickets will be refundable up to 14 days prior to the event. If you can no longer attend within 14 days, you can arrange a ticket transfer. For assistance, please email HELLO@SOUTHSTART.CO

You sure can. This can be done by emailing us at HELLO@SOUTHSTART.CO. Please note that this is only possible prior to the event taking place and not once it has started. Depending on the lead time, we may not be able to cater to any additional dietary requests given deadlines with our venues.

If you’ve been to our events before, you’ll be well versed in this – but for the newbies (welcome!!) – rest assured that you won’t be able to miss our team. On event day, we’ll have a host of SQUAD members floating around with bright & easy to recognise t-shirts. They’re there to help you at every step – there’s no silly questions!

At some events yes, at some no. We have multiple venues, sessions, days and events so depending on what you are attending catering may be included. This will be specified on your ticket.

There is no official dress code for _SOUTHSTART, but most people tend to dress smart casual. We encourage people to dress in a manner that makes them feel comfortable. Whatever that might be.

Most of our events will be hosted in the Adelaide CBD, which has plenty of accomodation options.

We’ve also secured discount codes for our attendees for some hotels, to be released soon.

If you’re staying within the CBD, there’s no need to fret. The the majority of our venues will be within walking distance – at most a 30 minute walk.

Most attendees are from the start-up ecosystem. This includes founders, investors, and operators, as well as universities, government, startup communities + more.

But we also have attendees outside of tech, including people from the social impact space, researchers, and more. If there was something that grabbed your attention — whether it was the programming or the non-transactional nature of our event – then this is for you.

_SOUTHSTART helps humans accelerate their ideas, networks and knowledge, through the creation of immersive and interactive experiences. We are passionate about our community and the events we create and we welcome all founders and funders (and anyone else!) to come along.
