Event description

Description

Australian Consul-General Nick Nichles invites you to the launch of the newest Australian Landing Pad cohort in San Francisco featuring members of the program's inaugural dual civilian and defence technologies stream. This cohort includes companies tackling issues ranging from crop health to drone deployment, and call center intelligence to disaster preparedness using a powerful suite of AI, ML, VR, and microgravity solutions.

The evening will offer an opportunity to meet the incoming class of Australian scaleups and hear from a panel of senior Australian decision-makers, venture capitalists and Silicon Valley stakeholders discussing the challenges and opportunities of integrating Australian and US defence technology ecosystems.

Panellists

Air Commodore Terry van Haren, Air Attaché of Australia to the United States
James Cross, Franklin Templeton Blackhorse Fund
Heather Richman, BMNT

Nibbles and Australian refreshments will be served.

Landing Pads provide market-ready Australian scaleups with access to some of the world’s most renowned hubs including San Francisco, Tel Aviv, Shanghai, Berlin and Singapore. Participants receive tailored access to Austrade's network of business specialists and partners during 90-day residencies.

The dual-use program is a partnership between the Austrade Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade), the Australian Department of Defence, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
