Sydney entrepreneur program to kick off next week

Leading innovators will come together in Sydney later this month to take part in 17 discussions on the new technologies expected to shape the future of the city.

As part of the City of Sydney’s annual visiting entrepreneur program, 11 technologists will take part in 17 events to discuss technologies ranging from autonomous vehicles, decarbonisation and creative experiences to future possibilities of the metaverse and cutting-edge innovations in medical research.

Speakers will include Tim Kentley Klay, co-founder of HYPR and Zoox; Grace Sai, CEO and co-founder of Unravel Carbon; Bell Beh, CEO and co-founder of BuzzAR; and Zareh Nalbandian, co-founder and CEO of Animal Logic.

The free events will be held from 22 June to 1 July, and will span online and in-person events. Locations will include Taronga Zoo, Powerhouse Museum, Haymarket HQ, the Quantum Terminal at Central Station and UTS Startups in Ultimo.

Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the free series is a great opportunity for the community to hear from global and local experts on the latest technological breakthroughs and innovations.

“From the pandemic to bushfires and floods, the tumultuous events of the last two years have reinforced the need for us to work together and innovate to address major social and environmental issues,” she said.

“That’s why the City is bringing together global thinkers and local entrepreneurs and asking them to push the limits of what seems possible. Not only will the collaboration help those in our tech and start-up ecosystems to learn from each other and grow, it will inspire thinking about how we can harness creativity and technology to tackle some of our most pressing issues.”
