Death to brainstorming

Thu 9 June 11:30 AM AEST

UTS, The Great Hall

Creative brainstorming in the workplace has stubbornly remained the same since its first introduction in the 1940s. Guess what? They kinda suck and don’t really work.

They often stifle creativity, smother several voices, waste time, and produce mediocre results.

Join Tim Duggan, co-founder of Junkee Media, at this light-hearted funeral for boring creative sessions and learn better ways to come up with ideas as a group that any workplace can apply right away.

Inventors: the climate connection

Thu 9 June 5:00 PM AEST

Sydney Knowledge Center

There is so much excitement right now about the technology and innovation we need to develop if we are to tackle climate change. Finally!

It is a true convergence of research, innovation, commercialization, scaling solutions and investment.

This evening of lightning presentations is a great opportunity to discover the latest developments and tell your tribe about your climate project.

The cost of capital

Thu 9 June 6:00 PM AEST

An important decision that influences the success of technology companies is having the capital to grow, and taking into account the expectations associated with that capital. What’s the right way to scale your business’ growth?

When is the right time to start raising money? Where should you allocate that capital efficiently in this game of running a technology company? What should you pay attention to when you think of financing with debt or equity?

Find the answers to all these questions and more at what is sure to be a very candid evening hosted by Tractor Ventures.
