Ignite Melbourne 2019

The cultural centre of Australia, where the culmination of business, technology, art, music, design & food make it the most liveable city on the planet.


We celebrate the new order of creative entrepreneurs.

We meet those that brushed hard against the grain, that blazed away with the risk by their sides and fought wars to bring us something terrific.

We can all take an idea from its nucleus and build something truly remarkable, that shapes our world.

Here’s to us.

Here’s to the creators.
