So you’ve hatched your own venture, now what?

Helmed by the nation’s most innovative brands and biggest names across business, technology, fashion and design, this one day conference will take your dream from start line to start-up and from established to exponential.

Serving as a practical guide for each phase of the impending journey, get your notebooks ready – KSS be unearthing everything from the fear rattling around in your mind to finding that elusive mentor (or even business partner), not forgetting the secrets to a successful investor pitch, the behind the scenes of product hacking and validation, and the big (hush hush) topic of money – where to get it, what to do with it and how much of it you’re worth.

The conference will help you find your place (to be or not to be, CEO?), tackle the art of hiring, and get you primed to ease the growing pains of a thriving business.

With keynote speeches, panel discussions and quick-fire presentations, plus the chance to pitch and workshop your own ideas – with The Collective founder and Editor-in-chief, Lisa Messenger, this is the start-up event that you can’t afford to miss.


Speakers include: Andy Lark (Xero), Dan Gregory (The Impossible Institute), David Rohsheim (Uber), Declan Lee (Messina), Gemma O’Brien (Mrs Eaves), Jeremy Wortsman (The Jacky Winter Group), Julie Stevanja (Stylerunner), Elizabeth Abegg (Spell Designs), Mark McDonald (Appster), Paul Schulte (Keystone), Rebekah Campbell (Hey You), Sebastian Eckersley-Maslin (BlueChilli) & Vince Lebon (Rollie Nation).
