BACKGROUND

We have some great opportunities to grow and deliver benefits to all of our strongest ongoing supporters and would love you to play a role which will be mutually rewarding.

 

In developing an invite only individual membership and corporate partnership plan we have a number of objectives all aimed at providing value to our supporters  and a growing business opportunities in the future. 

Why Foundation25 - We want up to 25 members from our support base to supplemented by by our Corporate Partners and our "alumni" (future focussed businesses e.g. Space, BioTech, Blockchain AI etc who have been part of of IITC events in past).

Foundation25 will form the Foundation for developing some shared visions for our individual organistaions and the State of SA  to be delivered by 2025 by taking ownership of a problem that we believe we can help with delivering a real solution. 

 

  • We want to build an alumni group of 6 startups and young entrepreneurs  we have had to our events and assist them to stay involved with us. We see great opportunities for our members to get to know businesses that are in the AI, Space, BioTech etc new technology areas.

  • Also we need an intern (a budding young entrepreneur) to take on much of the time consuming planning etc while we focus on growing and supporting our core. The intern to be shared with Alliance Partner Organisations.

  • We will in November establish a base in the Hyde St in the city (Moonshot Central) for our meetings, events and casual drinks on a Friday afternoon to meet like minded Business People and Entrepreneurs.

  • We will also build events in Brisbane to develop opportunities for Adelaide and Brisbane businesses collaborate.

 

So we need to grow revenue, commitment and loyalty.

 

Individual Membership will be by invitation only (limited to 25 initially) and will be based on developing a network of trust within our community.

 

Our Members (Individual and Corporate) will be seen by our supporters and followers

 

  • 1400 on Facebook (800 regularly engaged)

 

  • 350 on our mailing databases - people who have attended events or signed up for information

 

  • 3000 on our Instagram feed

 

….. as supporting our Purpose, Aims and Activities. 

Backing Innovation and Entrepreneurship in SA!!

 

Our Corporate partners will have the opportunity to promote this to their clients, staff, colleagues and prospects. Plus use our logo and any relevant materials on their website and other promotions.

 

In the age of Digital Transformation and Disruption being associated in the market with a movement such as ours will be a vital signal for your stakeholders.

 

We will build an inner circle of trust to develop tight working relationships between our most loyal supporters plus Major Sponsor, Corporate Partners and Alumni.  We expect this number to grow slowly later based on an invite only membership approach.
