Event information

The Weekly Innovation Challenge is for every entrepreneur, founder and business leader. If you’re growing a business, developing a product or just want to change the world, our goal at the Canberra Innovation Network is to show you relevant new ideas and challenge you to rapidly try them out. Every Lockdown Monday at 2pm (and for a couple subsequent weeks) we will introduce a topic, host guest experts, allow room for questions and end by setting a useful, actionable challenge for you to work on.

In the eighth installment of the Weekly Innovation Challenge, we answer the question, “How do I fund a prototype of my awesome idea?” We’ll be hearing from several successful recipients of the ICON grant ahead of its next funding round and talking shop when it comes to next steps. Bring your questions, connect with those who’ve been there before, and get closer to holding your dream in your hands!

Register on Zoom now!

And be sure to connect with other Canberra entrepreneurs on our LinkedIn Group, where we will host a discussion of the event, as well as your progress. You can also pose questions to put to our guests.

We encourage all entrepreneurs to engage in this weekly series — you may be just starting to develop a new idea, have technology emerging from research, or be an established company with growth or innovation ambitions … rest assured, this series is for you. If you missed previous weeks, don’t worry! Recap summaries and full recordings are available on our website.
