Description

From Startup to a Household Name

Access to finance for Small Business

Small business branding isn't easy. You're competing with online-first businesses in an age where consumers are used to the calibre of advertising coming from Amazon, Uber and Airbnb. In all of this, there are still incredible branding success stories coming from local startups and small businesses who are managing to achieve cut-through with consumers.

One of these success stories is Airtasker. With CEO Tim Fung at the helm, the business has gone from strength to strength. Tim's keynote presentation will take us through the experience of starting Airtasker, and we'll explore key insights that can help your business grow too.
