We had the pleasure of attending the Sunrise Conference at Carriageworks, Sydney last week.

The Sunrise is a startup conference presented by founders, for founders and brought together some of Australia’s most successful tech leaders to tell stories from their beginnings. They talked about the pivotal decisions, the big mistakes, the near misses and the ah-ha moments. Their tales were embarrassing, exhilarating and inspiring!

We learnt first hand what it takes to build a successful startup here in Australia, and hung out with other founders at all stages of the startup journey.

This year’s Sunrise speakers were a diverse group coming from all walks of life but all on the same mission to build the next generation’s most relevant technology companies.

Speakers included: Melanie Perkins from Canva, Mike Cannon-Brookes from Atlassian, Andre Eikmeier from Vinomofo, Craig Barratt from Google, Chris Boshuizen from Planet Labs, Julie Stevanja from Stylerunner.
