Bright Ideas Summit & Livestream commences
Welcome & Formal Opening
Starting the day with a moment of inspiration, your superstar host Nicole Dyson will lead an activity which will spark the tone for a day of learning and creation.
Panel Conversation & Q&A
From establishing a mental health podcast for young men, to life as a child in a Bhutanese refugee camp, to delivering healthcare for people with disability and complex medical issues - our inspiring young panellists have a wealth of stories to share. Join Callum, Monu & Trudy for a lively discussion and Q&A as they explore the narratives behind their paths to impact. Through the sharing of their stories, we're sure that new ones will emerge!
The Entrepreneur's Odyssey
During this session, teams will dig into the causes and consequences of a chosen problem, before prototyping their ‘best’ solution.
During this session, students will learn the art of storytelling before preparing a sixty second ‘Elevator Pitch’ of their solution.
Pitching & Deliberations
During the final session of the day, a select number of teams elevator pitch to a special panel of guest judges for the chance to be crowned the Brightest Idea of the Summit.
"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.”
CAM ADAMS - CO-FOUNDER AT CANVA
"THE IMPACT ON INVESTING IS NO LONGER CHARITY AT _SOUTHSTART!"
"It’s become clear that purpose and profits are more aligned than ever. Founders and investors alike are doubling down on commitments to solving real societal and environmental issues. Australia has a big role to play here as a well-connected, respected and balanced ecosystem. The environment and climate change were top of mind at the conference. Even businesses that weren’t directly involved spoke about the topic with urgency. Creative entrepreneurs from all over the map are laser-focused on making the world a better place. We can’t help but be optimistic."
Mick Liubinskas & Trevor Folsom - Partners at Investible
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.
