The popular Festival of Ambitious Ideas is on again, celebrating Canberra’s innovators, game-changers and status quo challengers.

As we approach the end of 2018, we will be celebrating some of the individuals and organisations working on innovative projects from a range of different sectors - technology, social enterprises, young entrepreneurs, creative industries, government and academia.

The Festival of Ambitious Ideas follows the ignite format where our speakers only have 5 minutes each to present their ideas and ‘ignite’ the audience. In a little over an hour, guests are treated to a range of different ideas and perspectives. The event is designed to be fast-paced, informal and fun.

Festival of Ambitious Ideas is proudly sponsored by the Canberra Airport.
