Event information

The Billion Dollar Panel event series features successful entrepreneurs, founders, and innovators that have experienced the challenging journey of entrepreneurship firsthand. These extraordinary people pass on their wisdom in a fireside-style chat with a member of the Canberra Innovation Network community.

Join us for a fireside chat with Peter Lilley to hear the story of Instaclustr – a Canberra open-source data technology company acquired by multibillion-dollar, Nasdaq-listed, cloud tech player NetApp, in a deal industry sources describe as worth more than $500 million. Peter will share experiences including finding customers, delivering enterprise-ready product, negotiating capital raises, finding a powerful open-source based strategy, and building a world-class team.

Hear Peter’s story as a co-founder and investor who took on the role of CEO of Instaclustr, and learn from his wider experience including co-founding and successfully selling Stratsec.
