We’re for founders and investors
Our purpose is to create valuable membership communities made up of incredible humans from the tech ecosystem. We bring founders, leaders and investors together to share experiences and learn from one another through carefully curated events, programmes and content.
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.
Innovation Bay is made up of two founder communities – Canopy (early stage Founders & CEOs) and Summit (later stage Founders & CEOs) – and two investor communities – Horizon (Angel Investors) and Aurora (VC’s & general partners).
