InnovationAus.com is greatly pleased and super-stoked to announce the inaugural Budget Insider 2016, a super-cool innovation policy soiree hosted with event partners Stone & Chalk and Swaab Attorneys.
If you enjoy good wine, great insights and have a weakness for talking about innovation policy, then the Budget Insider 2016 is perfect FOR YOU.
Come along and pour over the meaty entrails of ScoMo’s first Budget speech as we tear it apart before putting it back together again … be the first to spot the new innovation initiatives and policies that will have an impact on our industry.
Budget Insider brings together panels of tech and startup industry experts to provide commentary on the forces shaping this years’ Federal Budget, and to help drive the important conversations related to the technology sector in Australia.
“We are extremely excited about our first event for the year. In the innovation sector, we’ve all been energised by the National Innovation and Science Agenda announced by the Prime Minister in December,” said InnovationAus.com publisher, Corrie McLeod.
“With Scott Morrison’s first Budget, we’re expecting to hear more details about how those programs will be funded, putting some meat on the bones of the NISA blueprint.”
“Budget Insider is our platform to gather the voices and opinions of key experts and advisors, and to encourage meaningful discussions and ideas in order for the tech sector to engage successfully with government and policy-makers,” Ms McLeod said.
Budget Insider’s distinguished panel of speakers include:
• Alex Scandurra, CEO, Stone & Chalk
• Rob Fitzpatrick – CEO, AIIA
• Kate Carruthers, Deputy Director Business Analytics and Data Governance at UNSW
• Yasser El-Ansary – CEO, AVCAL
• Peter Cooper, CEO, The Start Society
• Jonathan Barouch, CEO, Local Measure
• Karen Lawson, Head of Innovation, Slingshot
Budget Insider is a good way to understand the Budget and what it means for the innovation sector over a glass of wine.
Following the panel discussion, InnovationAus.com Editorial Director James Riley will serve up an analysis of the announcements before opening up the floor for Q&A and further discussion.
