Description

Festival of Ambitious Ideas showcases some of the innovative businesses and initiatives in Canberra across a variety of sectors.

The theme for this event will be ‘Female Innovators’. We will be celebrating some of the female CEOs, founders, inventors and innovators working on interesting projects in the ACT region.

The Festival of Ambitious Ideas follows the Ignite format where our speakers have only 5 minutes each to present their ideas and ‘ignite’ the audience. In a little over an hour, guests are treated to a range of different ideas and perspectives.
