Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get there?
Royal Randwick Racecourse is just a 10 minute drive from the CBD. You can take a cab or UBER for about $10-15. There are also several public transport busses that will take you there. If taking public transport the closest bus stop is Alison Road near King St. If you are arriving by taxi/Uber please have them drop you off at the Alison Road entrance.
IS THERE PARKING ON SITE IF I DRIVE?
Yes! If you would like to drive to the conference there will be plenty of FREE parking available! Simply follow the signs for Randwick Racecourse parking and you may leave your car in the parking lot while you attend the conference.
CAN I ENTER THE EVENT AT ANYTIME?
Absolutely! You can enter and exit the event at your leisure so long as you are wearing your StartCon wristband, which acts as your ticket. But please do not remove, tamper, or attempt to transfer your ticket to another visitor, or we may have to refuse your entry.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR ANY VOLUNTEERS?
Thanks for offering your time! If you think you have the right skill set to be an awesome volunteer please fill out this form. Want to get even more involved? We’re hiring an Event Coordinator & a Corporate Sales Person.
I AM PART OF THE MEDIA, HOW DO I REQUEST A PRESS PASS?
If you’re a journalist reporting for a major media outlet or a private blogger with a considerable audience, we’d be happy to have you join as our guest. Please complete this form and we'll send you a media pass. Limited speaker interviews will be available by request.
WILL I MEET SPEAKERS AND INVESTORS IF I ATTEND?
Last year speakers like Sean Ellis & Oli Gardiner spent plenty of time networking at our afterparty, but most speakers are busy founders who are only able to share limited time. All speakers are encouraged to meet attendees, walk the floor, and enjoy the conference — but we make no guarantees. There will, however, be hundreds of investors among the audience — many who’d love to meet you. Our secret to spotting & connecting with VIPs: say hello to those people who seem relaxed and sit back during networking breaks, as many of them will be those whose networks are already incredible.

I CAN NO LONGER ATTEND THE EVENT, CAN I GET A REFUND?
