I spoke recently to a few hundred people at Customs House in Sydney CBD down near Circular Quay, a gorgeous old sandstone building.
If you know anyone that is learning or just entering the tech startup space in Australia this playlist is a MUST WATCH.
The City Of Sydney (CoS) Lord Mayor Clover Moore introduced the program of professional tech startup industry experts –
- Pete Cooper – SydStart
- Riley Bachelor – GA
- Kim Heras – PushStart
- Melanie Perkins from Canva
The genesis of the night was a startup round table of 20 leaders called by the City of Sydney strategic development unit lead by Andrea and Charnelle after our chats earlier in the year. This unit has the rare skill of planning up to 20 years in advance which is great to see but I wouldn’t want that challenge…
The round table was chaired by City of Sydney CEO Monica Barrone who has been a steady supporter of the program and the ecosystem. They made it happen along with Jo Kelly and Gail Marshall and the CoS even rolled out the green carpet for us. Huge Thanks.
The event was oversubscribed and post event survey made us all very happy –
- 100% satisfaction rate and a
- 99% ‘I’d recommend to a friend’ rate
Both of which are remarkable.
The next one has been scheduled for September. I hope they book the Sydney Town Hall for 500 people cause I think we can fill it, then we can get them all to attend SydStart too.
