Calling all WA founders, startupers, and ecosystem supporters. StartupWA, Meshpoints, and the New Industries Fund are providing 20 fully-funded entry tickets to attend _SOUTHSTART in Adelaide next month.
_SOUTHSTART is essentially Adelaide’s version of West Tech Fest — you can find out more about it here and read about some of the speakers here. The event will bring together individuals with burning curiosity, passionate drive, and unwavering tenacity to make a difference in the world. Over three days, delegates will explore industry insights, engage in crucial earth discussions, and empower each other.
The 20 fully-funded scholarships are available for WA-based innovators, entrepreneurs, and change-makers. It’s more than just an entry ticket — it’s a gateway to unlocking a world of learning, mentorship, and networking.
Jason Balchand, Chair of StartupWA commented “Attending _SOUTHSTART is a great opportunity to learn from founders from all over Australia and network with some of Australia’s most prominent VCs. I attended last year’s conference and loved it, making many valuable connections across the three days so will be there again this year.”
Successful applicants can expect to make valuable connections with movers and shakers from international innovation ecosystems, gain actionable intelligence for their business growth, and take part in creating an inclusive global environment.
Valued at $599.00 per ticket, the scholarships provide entry to the multi-day event. Flights and accommodation are not included and will be at the delegate’s expense.
