WE CONNECT HUMANS TO IDEAS, POSSIBILITY & EACH OTHER
_SOUTHSTART is Australia’s leading curator of immersive and interactive adventures focused on helping humans to accelerate their network and knowledge in ways not traditionally found. We gather the best and brightest minds across Australia, NZ and beyond to connect and share through intelligent conversation, fabulous food and world-class wine.
“All the team at _SOUTHSTART did an amazing job of making me feel welcome in their city — and the event itself was one of the most organised I’ve had the privilege of being involved in.”
Cameron Adams — CPO / Co-Founder at Canva
THROUGH FESTIVALS, DINNERS, HIKES & MORE.
The entrepreneurial path is a hard road, and often lonely. You need support, networks and mentors. We create platforms for entrepreneurs, investors, innovators, technologists, students, aspiring start-up founders and the next generation of leaders to learn, connect and share ideas tasked from a world beyond our experience.
“I was struck by the uniqueness of this event as it started and continued to focus on us as humans — not just superstar entrepreneurs, but humans. We need this approach if entrepreneurs are to deliver the social and economic changes we need in the world.”
Dr Sarah Pearson — Deputy Director General at Dept. Innovation and Tourism Industry Development
MADE BETTER, BY HUMANS.
With the acceleration of exponential technologies, we face monumental challenges and opportunities to bend, steer and direct them together – as humans – to positively impact people, society and the planet. We create the platform for humans to come together and learn how to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.
“Loved spending time at _SOUTHSTART. Discussed some huge ideas and met many great Australian founders all in the one place. The level of ambition was stratospheric and the energy in the community palpable. We’ll be back for sure.”
John Henderson — Partner at Airtree Ventures.
