Innovators Virtual Lunch

For innovators, researchers, founders and entrepreneurs, including those with ambition to become one.

Innovation Ecosystems

Join us for the 7th Innovators Virtual Lunch as we discuss innovation ecosystems and their value to regional economies.

An innovation ecosystem is generally considered to be a collection of many different loosely interconnected participants and relationships that help innovators and entrepreneurs accelerate the development and launch of solutions to real world problems. While in some respects the innovation ecosystem in the Hunter is nascent, the ingredients for it to rapidly evolve are all here.

Join Chad Renando, CEO of Startup Status, Co-Founder of the Australian Innovation Ecosystem Builder’s Slack Community and Innovation Ecosystem Researcher as well as Grant Sefton, Chair of Hunter Angels & Hunter iF, Tim Cotter, Regional Manager at AusIndustry, and Brandon MacIntosh, Innovation Ecosystem Facilitator at City of Newcastle at our next Innovators Virtual Lunch as we take a deep dive into what makes up a successful innovation ecosystem and look at why it is important to support the development of our innovation ecosystem here in the Hunter.

As always, we will have a ‘soap box’ session where we welcome a 30 second comment, question, announcement or offer.

With the impact of the sudden economic downturn caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) putting the resilience of Australian businesses to the test, it’s more important than ever that we come together to share ideas and stories of how businesses are innovating in these extraordinary times.

Grab your lunch and join us online at 12.30pm on Friday June 12th.


The event is finished.
