Event Details


David Butler, Global Vice-President of Innovation at Coca-Cola Company, believes there is a huge opportunity to move startups to scaleups. He will be visiting Australia from the Coke Headquarters in Atlanta, and leading a discussion at Fishburners on Thursday 1st August with the startup community, exploring Coca-Cola's role in this new era of innovation. 


In the late nineties, Dotcoms ruled innovation. But, as the bubble burst, the concept of the Lean Startup began to get momentum. Over the last 5-10 years we've seen an explosion in start-up activity. Today, almost every country, city, university and company has some kind of connection to the global startup community.

So what's the problem? Scale. All startups struggle with scale. But that's where we, The Coca-Cola Company, come in. We understand scale—especially global scale—how to create it and how to sustain it. Our goal is to help unleash the next wave of global innovation by moving startups to scaleups.

Join us at Fishburners on Thursday 1st August for beers from 5:30pm, with David kicking off at 6:00pm.
