As part of the 2020 Ventures Industry Challenge we will be hosting fortnightly in person breakfasts.

This year's challenge focuses on the problems and opportunities for the global water industry:

While the global population continues to grow, access to fresh water has become increasingly scarce. How can we use water resource management and sustainability to maintain the lives and industries of communities around the world?

Ventures Industry Challenge Breakfasts are an opportunity for you and your team to:

  • Check in with Ventures staff
  • Meet other teams
  • See how other teams are going
  • Q&A about the Challenge
  • Discuss your entrepreneurial journey

For this session, we will test your solution you are working on for the Challenge.

Your host for the Ventures Industry Challenge Breakfast is Kylie Cooper
