Why innovation, technology and startups?
A startup is a business that sells globally, is technology-enabled, and uses innovation to compete at a global scale. Startups were responsible for almost all the net job growth in Australia over 2003-2014 according to the Australian Financial Review 2016. Deloitte also found that businesses with high levels of technology engagement were 14 times more likely to be innovating, 7 times more likely to be exporting, and 8 times more likely to be creating jobs.
Growing regional tech, innovation and startup communities is vital to creating regional jobs. Binary Shift was created to showcase regional entrepreneurs, help build community around innovation and technology in regional areas, and connect regional business owners to national and global thought leaders in innovation and entrepreneurship. If you’re a regional business owner, tech professional, or community leader, Binary Shift is for you.
Binary Shift is for:
Learn how to grow your business with startup thinking, innovation and technology. Network with other local business owners and tech experts, and find ways to maximise your business potential using technology.
Connect with industry experts on topics such as virtual reality, drones and AI, and learn how businesses are using technology and innovation to solve real world problems.
Be inspired by stories of other regional founders and meet other leading entrepreneurs from across Australia and beyond.
Learn how to activate startup communities in your region and get to know the startups that already exist in your local area.
