Innovation Champions is a global community for professionals who are working in the startup ecosystem to share knowledge, collaborate, and support each other.
We believe that "A rising tide lifts all boats" - Whether you are working in higher education, government, corporate, private company, or not-for-profit, and regardless of what your role title is, as long as you are open to sharing and collaboration, you are welcome at Innovation Champions and we value your participation and contribution.
We also believe that quality is more important than quantity. The Innovation Champions community is by referral/invite-only. To explore what the journey looks like for you, simply fill out the EOI form, and we will get back to you within 2 business days.
CO-FOUNDER & CEO, Inspiring Chats
"Throughout my career and founder journey, I've met so many amazing professionals who are supporting the startup ecosystem: They are passionate, authentic, open-minded, forward-thinking, and knowledgable.
I see so much value in bringing great people together through a de-centralised community, a space where you can have deep conversations, share knowledge, brainstorm ideas/solutions together, explore collaborations, and scale impact.
If this resonates with you, simply reach out via the EOI form, and I would love to get to know you!"
