If you've ever sat around a campfire you would know of the power of the stories shared. As you stare into the blazing red flames in front, you know that a fire burns stronger the closer it is together. With a bit of guidance here and there you know that the fire which is lighting up your dark sky can become a bonfire.
We want to show the young entrepreneurs that they are not alone. There are opportunities for the younger youth (high school) to connect. There are opportunities for the veteran founders and innovators to share their stories of passing. There is a lack of opportunity for those 18 to 25 year old. There is a lack of opportunity for them to showcase the fire they are burning late at night amidst university lectures. There is a lack of opportunity for them to show the broader entrepreneurship community how they should be taken seriously and how they really are creating a better tomorrow today. We are creating a weekend where their fire will burn brighter not because it's burning faster, but because it has found a bonfire to burn in.
Well, ideally, I hope to hear from you! Why do you want to speak at the inauguration of what will become Australia's largest student innovation conference? Why is it that you want to ignite the kindling and illuminate those that have spent so much time in the dark?
