Australia’s largest creative-tech summit for creative entrepreneurs, Creative3 this September has attracted some interesting speakers – including Ben Britten, an Academy Award winner for technical achievement in films including Spiderman, Superman Returns, and Terminator 3.

Creative3 has announced its first round of speakers and panellists, featuring some world-renowned creative entrepreneurs and thought-leaders, including creator and producer of That Startup Show, Anna Reeves.

Additional speakers and panellists include: former David Jones chief executive, Paul Zahra; Stashd co-founder, Jessica Wilson; managing director and co-owner of children’s production house, Like A Photon Creative, Kristen Souvlis (who recently formed part of the first Australian female team to produce Sesame Street); Area360 and STQRY founder, Chris Smith; co-founder and chief financial officer of Smartstudy, Ryan Lee; and Bidchat co-founder and chief executive, Roger Ein. International start-up industry veteran, Mark Pesce – who initially launched CEA nine years ago – will be joining Creative3 as MC. 

Now in its seventh year, Creative3 is an initiative by QUT Creative Enterprise Australia (CEA). It is recognised as Australia’s leading creative-tech event designed to spark collaboration and connect those within the industry.

It will also feature an exclusive breakfast event – Creative3 Pitch – where four shortlisted creative-tech start-ups from across Australia will pitch to angel investors. CEA will provide pre-event coaching and workshops to ensure each start-up is pitch-ready. The winner will go on to represent Australia and compete against 63 countries at the Creative Business Cup in Denmark later this year.

The chief executive of QUT CEA, Anna Rooke, said: “We are incredibly excited to announce the first round of confirmed speakers and panellists joining us at Creative3 this year. We have a sensational line-up of entrepreneurs and industry leaders covering a wide range of creative disciplines, and we can’t wait to hear them share their experiences in scaling their creative-tech venture.

“Around 10% of the Global 500 in 2016 are creative enterprises, and with Australia’s creative industries currently worth almost $90 billion, we must do more to stimulate this. By underpinning the creative industry with technology disruption, Australia will be in a better position to create more viable and sustainable start-ups capable of scaling their success worldwide,” she added.

Creative3 will take place at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on Thursday, 22 September, from 9:30 am – 8:30 pm. For more information visit the website.

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).
