Event information

Come and join the end of year celebrations at this year’s Innovation Showcase.

Competitions, Collaborations and Innovative Brews to celebrate 5 years of the Canberra Innovation Network.

You are invited to the 2019 Innovation Showcase!

The Innovation Showcase is our way to celebrate the hardworking innovation and startup community in Canberra, highlighting their achievements and progress.

It’s a fun and interactive afternoon, enabling the community to come together, share stories and get energised for the next year ahead.

This year we are celebrating the Canberra Innovation Network‘s 5th Birthday and the 50th First Wednesday Connect.

Bending rules, pushing boundaries and testing new ideas make innovation possible and that’s why we are collaborating with BentSpoke Brewing Co to deliver this event. We’ve even brewed a beer for the occasion! All tickets include a drink voucher to try The Innovator or a less ‘hoppy’ drink of your choice.

All proceeds from ticket sales are going to Hands Across Canberra, an independent community foundation which works with over 250 local charities.

Prefix Films are sponsoring the prize this year for the 2019 Innovation Showcase’s Pitching Competition – Video services to the tune of $10,000!
