Event description


As a small business, we understand that small business owners know their industries often better than most. This event is about how you as a small business owner can drive or be part of the disruption in your industry as opposed to being the victims of the change and disruption of industry.

Join us on 26th July at the Western Sydney University to be part of a mass movement that connects you with thousands of entrepreneurs, investors and technological innovators.

You will be part of a community of talented individuals discussing commercial innovation and growth while creating mass awareness of the low level of digital engagement among small businesses across Australia.
