In a world where inequities are being exacerbated by an increased cost of living, the climate crisis, and global unrest, we must not only break down barriers to innovation but support the founders, creators and changemakers shaping a more sustainable future.

Launched in 2018, Founderfest allows industry leaders to encounter cutting-edge ideas, discover new interests, and network. It explores the crucial issues and opportunities facing growing businesses as they navigate towards a sustainable, diverse, prosperous future.

Founderfest 2023 was a powerful forum that brought together some of the most inspirational founders, business leaders, investors, and corporations to create a new agenda for growth. Founderfest 2023 featured engaging panels, workshops, live pitches, and networking with likeminded individuals, drawing over 500 sign-ups and 40+ esteemed speakers!
