Startup Breakfast: Australian Made Has a New Heartbeat

Startups - Networking

Event Details

Can we manufacture a new era of Australian Made?

It’s time to make the homegrown Australian Made brand into something global. The markets of the world are changing, and Melbourne is at the centre of Australian engineering, IT, medical research and design. Now is the perfect chance to breathe new life into Australian Made. This talk will ask why and how world markets are changing and what this means for local creators.

This event is booked out.
