Get ready for Explore24 | Sep 9-12 | Darwin

Innovation Bay, Australia’s leading membership community for tech founders and investors, is excited to announce that our biggest event of the year – Explore24 – will be coming to Darwin, NT, on September 9 – 12, 2024.

Explore24 is not your typical tech conference

This year will see 200 attendees coming together over four thrilling days, experiencing three unique journeys, representing two sides of the Australian tech ecosystem – founders and investors. This unique gathering of minds will create one must-attend experience in one of the most extraordinary locations on Earth, Australia’s iconic Northern Territory.

“Words will never do justice to Explore,” says Phaedon Stough, CEO and Co-founder of Innovation Bay. “It’s an unparalleled, unplugged retreat that fosters genuine connections and collaboration in an immersive environment. When large groups of equally ambitious people come together in a remote location to switch off, gather and share ideas, the resulting impact is guaranteed to be extraordinary and far-reaching.”

Themed “from little things, big things grow,” Explore24 has been designed as three unique journeys, one for each of our Founder, Angel and VC communities. Members will engage in a series of experiential activities, insightful discussions, and meaningful networking opportunities. This journey will culminate on day four with a coming together of the communities – unlocking and unleashing the power of Australia’s leading technology founders and investors coming together.
