"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.

SARAH PEARSON - BOARD DIRECTOR, ADVISOR & INNOVATION LEADER
