Event overview

Encouraging new ventures and an entrepreneurial outlook is critical to the nation’s economic diversification and advancement. Australia has the ingredients to become a leading entrepreneurial nation – we were ranked first in the 2015 Global Creativity Index, and 13th in the Bloomberg Innovation Index. However, our poor ranking in indicators of entrepreneurialism – such as innovation efficiency (81st in 2015) and technology manufacturing (51st) must be addressed before this vision can be achieved. 

Join CEDA for a dynamic discussion as we look at questions such as:

  • How can we generate a national ethos that embraces and rewards risk-taking, ingenuity and courage?
  • What techniques are other nations using to encourage entrepreneurialism that could be adopted in Australia?
  • What drove accomplished entrepreneurs to take the leap of faith, and how difficult did they find the journey to success?
  • What learnings and advice should up-and-coming entrepreneurs consider?
