Speakers include Marc Randolph, Co-founder and the first CEO of Netflix, Christe Jenkins of Blackbird Ventures, Cheryl Gledhill of Culture Amp and Richelle Cox, Co-founder of NFT Fest Australia.
“It’s the first time I’m attending and speaking at _SOUTHSTART so I’m really excited to bring insight to the Web3 space to audiences who may not have been exposed to it before. Adelaide and South Australia as a whole has fantastic cultural experiences when it comes to their food, wine and arts too so I think accumulating that with an event focusing on innovation and impact, attendees will experience something we haven’t seen in Australia before,” shard Richelle Cox with The Chainsaw.
When: March 8-9
Where: Various locations across South Australia
