Innovation Talks: The Start-Up Economy and What We Can Learn From It
Every new business is a start-up but in recent years the term start-up has come to imply innovation, agility, high speed and big potential.
This idea of the start-up economy has become powerful in the UK and Australia, attracting innovators, money, and world-leading talent. Even more significantly, the start-up economy has had a profound impact on big business - influencing conventional models of how companies hire, build culture, work, collaborate, research, and invest in projects.
So what does it take to make it as, or within a start-up? What are the latest venture capital, working and hiring trends in start-up land? And how will they influence the broader economy in the years to come? Join us to hear from our industry insiders about their perspectives on:
- Start-Up Capital
- Start-Up Working Space
- Start-Up Culture and Talent
