3 February 2015 | Forum – Entrepreneurial Ecosystems: Great Places to Create Business.


How do we create vibrant places that stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship? Is this even possible?

To help answer this question, we are inviting  entrepreneurs, business leaders, service providers, policy-makers and representatives of industry and regional development agencies to get together and learn more about how each of us can influence the effectiveness of Adelaide’s unique entrepreneurial ecosystem.

We know that entrepreneurial ecosystems such as that experienced in Silicon Valley work. We also know that not many (if any) places are like Silicon Valley. No matter where you are, entrepreneurial activity that serves local needs will have links with markets and places; local, national and international. An increased understanding of and influence on the entrepreneurial ecosystem is crucial to building innovative and effective business models that co-create value.

When:     Tuesday, 3 February 2015, 9:00am – 5:00pm, lunch, morning and afternoon teas provided
Where:    Adelaide Convention Centre
Cost:       $215 per person, $105 for students (GST inclusive)
RSVP:     Register your attendance here

Outstanding keynote academics, including Professors David Audretsch (USA), David Storey (UK) will feature, as well as our own local academic team Professor Göran Roos and Dr Allan O’Connor.

The Forum is timed to coincide with the 2015 Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research (ACERE) Conference to be held at the University of Adelaide from 3 – 6 February 2015. This is an annual Australian research conference that attracts leading international scholars and provides a platform that allows attendees to share ideas about entrepreneurship and what makes it work.

By timing the Forum alongside the ACERE conference, an international mix of world-class entrepreneurship scholars will also be participating and adding new perspectives to enhance our understanding of our unique entrepreneurial ecosystem.
