Event description

South Australia is fast becoming synonymous with deep technology.

Artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, smart sensor networks, renewables, defence and space technologies, robotics, big data and creative industries are key areas being fostered here.

This has all been greatly supported by the development of Lot Fourteen - a seven-hectare innovation precinct - as well as cross-industry investment in our innovation sector, and progressive government initiatives. 

But how can we continue to share our story? What can we learn from other states, other nations and other voices? What do we need to improve on? What are we great at?

Join us for a breakfast discussion with some of SA's leading entrepreneurs and advisors, as we explore where we've been as a state, where we're going - and where we go next.
