Spark Festival 2017 well and truly knocked it out of the park!

With more than 9000 attendees heading along to more than 100 events, spreading all across Sydney, as well as our first "Regional Spark" in Newcastle, Spark Festival brought together an incredible collective of people doing amazing work in startups, innovation and entrepreneurship, across so many different sectors, and at all stages of the journey.

See below for a taste of what Spark Festival 2017 was all about, and be sure to get on our mailing list so you are first to hear about developments for Spark Festival 2018, taking place from October 19 to November 2, in Sydney and across all of NSW.
