FBT & Employment Taxes Webinar

Wed Mar 29, 2pm AEDT


It’s hard to believe it but we’re already almost in the final quarter of the financial year.

Which makes it a perfect time to make sure you’re across all the changes in FBT and employment taxes that might be relevant to your startup.

Better to cover this off with a leisurely 1hr webinar now, than in some frantic stressful calls with the accountant at the end of June!

Ready or Not: The Tech Takeover

Thu Mar 30, 5pm AWST

Murdoch Launchpad, Perth

The rate of new developments coming out of OpenAI, and the number of projects spinning out of this incredible platform, is genuinely unprecedented.

Technology is turning everything upside down and it’s happening faster every week.

It’s pretty timely then that Murdoch Launchpad is bringing together esteemed academics with trailblazing tech entrepreneurs for nuanced conversations around the ethical and social implications of disruptive technology.

This event will spark some great conversations around how we can champion critical thinking and embrace the complex realities that we are collectively facing, and most importantly, how to translate this into productive decision-making.

Peer to Peer Monthly

Thu Mar 30, 6pm AEDT

T.O.M.S Place, Melbourne

P2P (peer to peer) is a monthly learning event for tech enthusiasts of all backgrounds and with an array of experience and interests: product, development, founder, consumer.

Whether you want to tackle a new framework, flesh out a series B pitch, refine your product strategy, or just harness those elusive “soft skills” everyone’s talking about, you are welcome at P2P!

Using a freestyle method, attendees get the chance to teach what they’re passionate about and learn what they’ve always wanted to know more about.

Once done, pizza awaits!
