The Biggest Startup & Growth Conference in Australia

The reason StartCon didn’t go to Melbourne this year is because Philip Dalidakis and his team couldn’t deliver on what they agreed upon in a signed letter. The Minister and his team tried to re-trade on multiple points including marketing support, and his department was so comically incompetent that they couldn’t turn around a basic sponsorship agreement in five months despite repeated prodding, to the point of absurdity.
Australia's largest startup and growth conference, today announced that Andrew Chen (Head of Supply Growth, UBER) would headline StartCon 2016.
