Can lives be changed in 60 seconds?

Yes, thanks to the St George Kick Start Program. St George, TEDxSydney’s long-standing Principal Partner, is giving away another $100k at this year’s event to some of the brightest minds in Australia who pitch their business idea in under a minute to a panel of judges.

You can catch all the pitching action live on stage during the session breaks. In the morning, you’ll hear never-been-done-before business ideas and in the afternoon, listen to some growth hacking concepts for existing businesses. Winners will be announced on the day.

The business tribe promises to be a hive of activity throughout the day with opportunities to connect with the St George Kick Start Program finalists and business thought leaders.

You can also visit the business tribe to get a professional profile photo taken, experience the latest in technology that is transforming business or grab a cheeky massage from social enterprise – Joining Hands. Throughout the lunch break you can attend panel sessions to hear from previous Kick Start winners about the key challenges businesses face when getting an idea off the ground.
