Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly – Robert Kennedy.
Our ESIC Hub event was a great success with nearly 30 Startup founders, investors and advisors attending. ESIC = Early Stage Innovation Company. If your startup qualifies as an ESIC, qualifying investors in your startup can claim a tax offset and capital gains tax benefits. These are new tax incentives that came into effect 1st July 2016.
Don’t stress if you couldn’t make it to the event. Watch the livestream to get a basic understanding and connect with our newest sponsor, ESIC Hub. They will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

~~~~ Event Calendar
We have two major events coming up over the next 2-4 weeks. Attend at least one of these –
BuzzConf looks like a cutting edge tech conference… and it is! A cutting edge, technology, futurism, and innovation conference, where all participants and presenters spend the whole weekend together in a scenic campground rather than in a stuffy conference centre. Get your ticket here.
Future Assembly is Australia’s fastest growing emergent technology festival. It’s an action-packed 2-day event that will give you a snapshot of what the world will look in the near and far future. Hyperloop anyone? Get your ticket to the future, here.
There is a bunch of events run by friends of ours listed in our Event Calendar. Check out and attend what takes your fancy.
Check our Discussion Board regularly for Jobs, Events and News from the community. While you are there, why not start a conversation?
