The community for exceptional startup founders and investors

We're for founders and investors 

Since 2003, we’ve been creating valuable communities across the tech landscape. Through a calendar of curated events, programmes and content, we bring founders, leaders and investors together to share their experiences and learn from their peers.

Our mission is to support startup founders on their journey from idea to IPO. A united, strong, and vibrant tech community leads to better outcomes and more opportunities for startups, investors and the wider ecosystem.

The Innovation Bay team knows how to run a startup/investor event. They have honed their craft, know the audiences, and have a way of facilitating high-powered discussions unlike any group that I have come across in Australia.

The challenges of being a tech founder are difficult to shoulder alone. Being a member of Summit has given me an instant network of founders that have the same problems, but also, the same passion.

It is the trusted secure environment that allows for vulnerability and challenging conversations that you can't share with others, plus all delivered with great humour, casualness, and care of the whole person.

Presenting to the Innovation Bay investor community is the best thing that has happened to my startup. I felt well prepared going in to the event, and had a highly successful outcome. I couldn't recommend it more.
