Inclusion and diversity is in our DNA. We've reached out to startups, small business, corporates, government, universities, students and investors to build a weeklong program of activities and events that has something for everyone.
This year’s Spark Festival program features over 60 events across 15 tracks or themes, reflecting the breadth and depth of startups and innovation in Australia.
Meetups, mixers and socials. Hackathons, create-a-thons and workshops. Presentations, panels and pitching competitions. Events for children and families.
Whether you're an entrepreneur or a wantrepreneur, a student or an educator, already working in a startup, or curious to find out more, you'll find something on the Spark Festival program.
So clear your calendar now and start locking in some Spark Festival events!
