China Australia Millennial Project Summit opening event

In the next decade, China will become the world's largest economy. What does that mean for the Australia/China relationship in years to come? How will we remain competitive and stay ahead of the curve in a changing world?

If you're interested in entrepreneurship, business, technology, startups or China, this event offers an unmissable opportunity to gain insight into innovation in the Asian Century and the opportunities it offers to Australians through real-world examples.

It's a keynote speech by Jack Zhang, described as 'the most powerful geek in China' followed by a panel discussion featuring highly successful innovators and entrepreneurs including:

  • Jean Dong, political advisor on the China Australia Free Trade Agreement, whose company Winworld Australia was ranked by BRW in 2014 as one of the top 100 fastest growing companies in Australia;
  • Rick Chen, founder of Pozible, the largest crowdfunding platform in the Asia Pacific;
  • Andy Whitford, Westpac's Head of Greater China;
  • Jack Zhang of Geek Park;
  • Andrea Myles, CAMP CEO;
  • Moderated by Holly Ransom, G20 Youth Summit Chair and global strategist.

Who should attend?

- business leaders wanting to keep up with latest China developments;

- entrepreneurs, startups and innovators wanting to forge new connections and collaborations;

- students, teachers and graduates looking to maximise future opportunities;

- anyone who wants to learn more about entrepreneurship, innovation or technology in China.

Leading Innovation in the Asian Century is the opening event of a 5-day Summit organised by the China Australia Millennial Project (CAMP), a world-first bilateral incubator uniting top young leaders, innovators and changemakers from China with their Australian peers.

CAMP believes we can do better to bring Australia and China together by deepening networks, forging friendships and expanding potential for ongoing collaboration. We're introducing tomorrow's leaders to their future allies.

Our purpose is to build the skills, networks and confidence of emerging talent in both countries, empowering them to participate in co-engineering solutions for the world’s issues.
