This half-day bootcamp will take you on a deep dive into what it takes to start, scale, build and exit a startup.
The Startup & Scaleup Lifecycle: This session is perfect for beginners to the world of startups. We’ll deep-dive into questions like: what is a startup? How does it differ from a ‘traditional business’? What does the typical startup lifecycle look like? We’ll look at the history & development of ‘startups’ as we know them today, and learn the ‘startup jargon’ that has become common place.
The Startup Ecosystem: We will provide a big-picture view on the entire startup ecosystem. Who are the key players in the ecosystem, and what role do they play in supporting startup growth? How does Australia’s startup ecosystem compare to overseas markets?
The Founder Experience: You’ll hear from a panel of experienced startup founders who will share their experiences on the journey of ‘starting up’ and scaling their businesses. You’ll get to hear about the challenges, successes, common misconceptions and myths of the startup journey from experienced veterans. This panel session will be followed by a networking lunch with the speakers.
Networking Lunch & Tour: We will end the program with a tour of the Stone & Chalk, the centrepoint of innovation and entrepreneurship in Sydney which houses some of Australia’s most reputable and actively engaged startups, accelerators, and other ecosystem players.
