INSIDE A STARTUP: THE START, BUILD, SCALE & EXIT JOURNEY 2019-10-15T00:21:25+11:00

STARTUP SUCCESS:
WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

High-growth tech-startups have captured the admiration and imagination of everyone, whilst causing unprecedented disruption to every industry.

 

But this glamorous story is just a tiny part of the picture.

What does it mean to be a “startup”? Why do some startups make it big, while more than 90% fail?

Who are the other players in the ‘ecosystem’ (from investors to accelerators) that are critical to helping startups succeed, and what role do they play?

What does the Australian innovation and startup landscape look like, and how does that compare to otherglobal startup ecosystems?

To understand how startups are driving innovation, and what we can learn from them, it is critical to understand the
entire end-to-end ecosystem 
on which they depend to thrive.

BOOTCAMP CURRICULUM

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.
