The World’s First TEDx In The Sky With Qantas and YBF

The World’s First TEDx In The Sky With Qantas and YBF

As part of our partnership with Qantas, we were recently given the opportunity to help plan and be a part of the world’s very first TEDx event in the sky! YBF had the chance to help select ten startups to join us on a TEDx journey from Sydney to San Francisco.

The 3-day intensive tour of San Francisco and Silicon Valley saw the TEDx presenters and entrepreneurs attend growth sessions with Facebook, Google, Optimizely, and others.

From the official Qantas website:

Joining QF73 will be a group of ten Australian tech entrepreneurs and start-ups sourced by innovation hub, The York Butter Factory, and Australia’s leading supplier diversity organisation, Supply Nation.

Qantas Group Executive Brand, Marketing, and Corporate Affairs Olivia Wirth said: “Ninety-five years ago, Qantas was a start-up itself, and a large part of our success comes from the fact we have kept trying new ideas. So, we’re delighted to be able to give these emerging thinkers a unique platform to tell their stories.

“This is the perfect route for a world-first. We all know about the impact of the California tech boom, but what’s really exciting is the growing number of Australians doing business with Silicon Valley on the one hand, and building a home-grown Australian culture of entrepreneurialism on the other.
