Join us for an immersive afternoon of exploration and experiential learning as we look to understand how we can improve the state of our collective humanity - both in theory & practice. Through provocation, immersion & deep learning activities powered by the Atlassian Foundation & facilitated by Collab4Good - you’ll walk away from this afternoon with tools and frameworks to plan, report and sustain your impact. Whether you're a current or emerging founder trying to make your dent in the universe, or an investor, social change champion, diversity advocate or other curious human looking to learn from leading voices in the social enterprise sphere; this experience is for you.

Registration & Community Lunch
On arrival, you'll be greeted by our friendly SQUAD who will chaperone you to our picnic-style lunch outside the National Wine Centre. Here, you’ll connect with your fellow Impact Summit-ers alongside a host of other interesting humans who are attending another _SOUTHSTART adventure at the venue.
The Theory of Change: Unlocking the conversation
Join us for an immersive deep dive into the theory of “Change”. The Collab4Good team will be guiding your morning adventure - which will include hearing stories from a host of change-makers and impact champions, set to inspire & provoke new perspectives. This includes connecting with other guests to share, identify and collect new opportunities on your impact journey - while both sharing and developing your understanding of what impact really means.

(Literally) building your toolkit
Following on from your earlier discovery, you will engage in an immersive masterclass led by the Atlassian Foundation - focused on helping you to navigate the path from intention to sustainable & ongoing action. From medicine and space travel, to disaster response and more - their products help teams all over the world advance humanity through the power of software. So, dear human, you’ll be in good hands as you’re guided through an afternoon of deep learning & creation - while understanding where to go next.
[Bonus] Happy Hour Powered by Twilio
All ticket holders of our main friday events are invited to join us in the sunshine for closing drinks powered by our good friends at Twilio!
We know that by the time happy hour comes around, you’ll have sparked new ideas & will likely be in need of a debrief with your newfound change comrades. So what better way to conclude the afternoon than with celebration of what's been.
Don’t forget, Fringe & WOMAD are just around the corner if you want to continue the celebrations into the night & we’ll be in your inboxes shortly after to continue to support your journey in the years to come!
"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.
