18 JUNE 2016





The Digital Innovation Challenge is the only event tailored to STARTUPS, entrepreneurs, and intrapreneurs on the Mid North Coast. It is aimed at assisting our local startups to learn how to pitch, find co-founders, launch their product to the press, share their stories, reach early adopters and influencers and so much more.

The Coffs Coast has a wealth of entrepreneurs waiting to be unleashed on the national and global marketplace. This event will help to uncover them and inspire them to continue on their journey. We aim to connect them with people who can mentor them and, for two lucky Live Pitch Final prize winners, the Challenge will provide the money and support to make it happen.

Who should attend: aspiring entrepreneurs, seasoned entrepreneurs, professional service providers keen to hear about the next big thing, accountants, investors, supporters of innovation, tech heads and non-tech heads, people with half-baked ideas (in preparation for next year’s challenge), futurists and realists alike, just no devil’s advocate’s allowed.
