Australia risks falling behind agile Asian economies in the race to drive the innovation agenda. To thrive, Australian innovators and entrepreneurs need to understand and tap into fertile innovation ecosystems across Asia.

Asia is positioned to drive global economic growth with real GDP expected to more than double by 2030.  Asia will likely account for around 70% of the world’s capital stock, lead capital exports, and unlock a new middle class with needs for goods and services. In response to these changes, Asian economies are already highly innovative and are often outperforming Australia in major innovation indexes.

Join Asialink Business and Monash College for a discussion on the innovation and policy agendas of Asian innovation superstars including India, China, Singapore and South Korea. Find out more about the Australian innovation ecosystem, what Australia can learn from Asia’s varied experiences, and how our innovators and entrepreneurs can better connect and collaborate with Asian counterparts.

Drawing on practical business case studies, the event will showcase both successful start-ups in Asia and the activities of large innovative companies from the region.
