Tickets for the next upcoming SOUTHSTART event are not yet available. Please check back again at a later date


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.

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

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

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. 


You guys throw a mean party. Nice to be a part of it. Thanks for the fun!

Simon Thomsen, Editor at Startup Daily

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!

The energy in the room was amplified. The smiles multiplied. The connections strengthened. We all ended up on the winning team.
