What we're about

Entrepreneurial spirit is a mindset. It's an attitude and approach to thinking that actively seeks out change, rather than waiting to adapt to change. It's a mindset that embraces critical questioning, innovation, service and continuous improvement.

Entrepreneurial thinking is about recognising opportunities in the marketplace and understanding how and when to capitalise on them. Becoming an entrepreneur is not necessarily an inherent trait. It takes time to train yourself to use your talents and experience to see opportunities where others do not.

Underpinned by a lean startup approach, it's not easy growing a global company from a regional city, so join us to learn from others who are on the same journey, and some who have achieved spectacular success. Lean Startup methods provide a structured and disciplined approach to launching new products and services including starting new enterprises. These concepts are designed to reduce market risks and sidestep the need for large amounts of initial project funding and expensive product launches and failures.

You might have a startup or side hustle, be self-employed or a sub-contractor, run a small business, be scaling up or seen as a standout business. Regular meetups will connect you to members are on the same path as yourself, investors, innovation leaders, ecosystem members, skilled professionals, government representatives and advisers.

Mental Wealth for Entrepreneurs and Startups

WOTSO WorkSpace

Did you know that almost 1 in 2 Australia adults will experience mental illness in their lifetime? Every $1 invested in strengthening mental health and wellbeing in the workplace has an average return of $2.30, and when you run your own business, are an entrepreneur or startup, you know how important it is to take care of yourself and your team. Investing in strengthening our mental wellbeing makes good sense and at this event co-hosted by SA Mental Health Commissioner Chris Burns CSC, you’ll hear from your peers on challenges and experiences in a down to earth discussion. #GiveFirst and taking care of each other in the entrepreneurial ecosystem is not only something we say but do, so please join in this event with a focus on mental wealth, reducing the stigma and practical ways to manage your wellbeing. You’ll experience a relaxed environment with drinks (Thug Life Brewing beer, wine, soft drinks) and nibbles from Wanna Graze. Video footage, photos and social media posts will be shared on the night and Entrepreneurship Facilitators are funded by the Australian Government with the initiative managed by the Department of Employment, Skills, Family and Small Business.
