Bendigo Invention + Innovation Festival

  • Quality Resort All Seasons 171-183 McIvor Road Bendigo, VIC 3550 (map)

The Be.Bendigo Invention + Innovation Festival (BIIF) is a week-long series of events that promote innovative ways of thinking and doing business, while challenging the dialogue around the future of regional Australia.

The festival grew out of the Bendigo Inventor Awards which is still a highlight event of the festival. It was created to showcase regional entrepreneurs, help build a community around innovation and technology in regional areas, and connect regional business owners to national and global thought leaders in innovation, entrepreneurship and future tech. BIIF is an initiative of Be.Bendigo and directly supports its purpose of ‘supporting Greater Bendigo businesses to be prosperous, sustainable and innovative’. It is also a key event of the Victoria-wide Digital Innovation Festival.

On Monday 2 September, Skalata Ventures Fund Manager, Anthony Glenning, will join a panel of experts to talk about finance options for startups and pitching to investors.
