Inspire & Grow: Growing Digital Creative Businesses and Inspiring the Next Generation

This is the first in a series of three business events.  

Mediatech has arrived. It’s in our cars, bedrooms, and workplaces. We’re watching Netflix, playing Fortnite and listening to Spotify. The total cumulative value of the Top 100 public mediatech businesses (like Spotify and Dropbox) is worth more than US$275 billion.

How are we supporting mediatech businesses, as well as other digital creative businesses, locally? How are we inspiring the next generation to become involved in these fast-growing industries?

Around Sydney there are some fantastic initiatives to support the growth of digital creative businesses, and inspiring the next generation. Come hear from the leaders of these innovative programs to explore what they are doing to grow our slice of the pie.
