What’s ON in the innovation community

A woman sits on a panel with 4 other people. She is wearing back and reading glasses, with a microphone in her hand. She is holding it up as if speaking. The others are looking at her, listening.

ON Alumni: We need your help

The ON program is undertaking an independent review to assess our impact, and areas for improvement. To keep doing what we do, we need your help to demonstrate the difference ON has made to you. ON Alumni have been invited to participate via email with a link to a survey. Sharing your ON experience will help us continue to offer free programs to validate, explore and build your big ideas. The survey will remain open until 11:59pm AEST on April 24th. If you are ON Alumni and unsure if you’ve received a link to the survey, contact the ON team at


Adelaide recently hosted _SOUTHSTART, a festival for founders, investors, and innovators.
