High value round tables

Round table discussions offer a great networking avenue that give all attendees the opportunity to share with, and learn from, a group of peers. Our roundtables are moderated by carefully selected ecosystem enablers who keep conversation flowing and facilitate honest discussion.

SME showcasing

ICA is a dynamic event: we want all players to be networking, engaging, sharing and learning. Throughout the conference exciting investment ready businesses in our pipeline are showcased through quickfire pitches, keeping the energy high, and the focus on making deals.

Networking breakouts

ICA is all about building networks and getting deals done. Many of our attendees will have interacted in the lead up to the conference using our Impact Starter platform. But we know how critical the personal element of deal-discussion and relationship building is, so we incorporate timely networking breakout and discussion segments throughout the conference.
