StartCon has officially launched its 2017 dates – and we’re thoroughly excited about it! This year, Australia’s largest startup and growth confernce will be held on December 1st & 2nd at the Randwick Racecourse. And it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before.

Last year we moved StartCon to a bigger venue and saw 3,000+ startups, investors, growth hackers, and international speakers flow through our doors. This year we’re expecting nearly 4,000 to attend, as we continue to be the largest gathering of startups, entrepreneurs, investors, media, and corporate innovation teams in the country.  So if you’re thinking of waiting til the last minute to grab those tickets, you might have another think coming. 

StartCon has sold out six years in a row, and 2017 will be no different. 

So what can you expect from the most anticipated Startup event of the year? 

StartCon is the crème de la crème of startup and technology events, where hustlers, hackers, and wannabe unicorns unite to pitch, exhibit their wares, and learn from the best global talent. Oh, and did you hear about those funding rounds that were initiated at StartCon 2016? Investors, we’re looking at you.

Over the jam-packed 2-day event, 500+ startups, 150+ exhibitors, and 60+ speakers will navigate through 4 levels of exhibition, pitch competition, stages, and party like entrepreneurs afterwards. Also, this year, stealing our unicorns will not be tolerated. 

Attendees and speakers jet in from all over the globe, some of our past speakers include top growth leaders at Uber, NASA, SurveyMonkey, Zillow, Twilio, 500 Startups, Growth Hackers, Pinterest, Atlassian, BitTorrent, Alibaba and more. This year’s lineup is set to be even BIGGER with huge name speakers who are shaking things up beyond Silicon Valley.There are too many takeaways from StartCon to list, but key highlights include notebooks full of actionable insights from our rockstar speakers, a case full of new business cards and contacts, new customers, exposure to new ideas and technology… and massive amounts of swag.In the upcoming weeks we’ll be launching ticket sales and making some HUGE announcements on keynote speakers, so stay tuned and get in quick for those Early Bird Tickets (soon to drop!).
